Publisher's Summary

Goon but not forgotten. From 1952 to 1960 the Goons ruled the airwaves, the most celebrated and influential clowns in the history of radio.

GO ON, take your seats for the time-warp as Sir Walter Raleigh loads his treasure on the good ship Venus; the Hon. Harold Bowels MP gets the Needle from Cleopatra; Neddie, the 6,000-year-old Plasticine Man is unearthed at Stonehenge; and secret agent Capt. Hairy Seagoon tracks down the Russian time machine in a special edition recorded for the BBC Transcription Service.

Only the esteemed Time Lords Peter Sellers, Spike Milligan, and Harry Secombe can do all this through the truly timeless wireless wizardry of The Goon Show.

And how is Mein Herr this morning? Going a bit thin on top.

Don't miss any of the classic Goon Show episodes.

    "Weapons of Mass Goonstruction"

    Yes folks, the talking-type all-leather Goon Show is on Audible.com. I've got most of this stuff on my old steam-driven audio cassettes, but will now re-purchase the lot in modern-type mp3 format. For those of you who already know the Goons ... 'nuff said. For those who are unfamiliar with the works of the true masters of comedy, please download any one of the files to try out, settle back with your headphones, and experience the magic. Your life will be changed. Your parents/spouse/partner/siblings will probably send you to a shrink after a few weeks of listening to this stuff, but, hey, who cares?
