More Speakers' Corner than Helproom..:-)

But it's still fantastic to hear a Goon Show.

i borrowed my dads collection of tapes (the whole series) when i was in my twenties, im 39 now and still love them, i have yet to find a female who shares my affection though!

Yes, Stuartli, I agree it should really be in Speakers Corner, but I thought you'd like brief respite from all the problems you solve for folk on this forum

And didn't someone say:

"What is this Go on Show?"

When I was in the Navy it was compulsory listening.

No one was allowed to speak or do anything until the show finished.

That's because you can't get the wood, Modern Min...

What about 'The Navy Lark' PJ of course that was more accurate Ha!

"She's a loose woman, y'know."

Thanks for the link, Sea Urchin - it's definitely one to treasure.
