Publisher's Summary

Diehard Dad's Army fan Phill Jupitus has selected four of his favorite episodes from the evergreen radio series, starring Arthur Lowe, John Le Mesurier, and Clive Dunn. "The Man and the Hour", 28 January 1974; "My British Buddy", 18 May 1976; "Time On My Hands", 3 August 1976; and "A Soldier's Farewell", 8 April 1975.

As he says, "There are episodes here you will be familiar with and some you may never have heard, but what I can promise is that they are all achingly funny."

"The Man and the Hour" is the first ever episode of the radio series, in which Mainwaring sets up a troop of Local Defence Volunteers ("Come on Adolf, we're ready for you!").

"My British Buddy" finds Mollie Sugden guest starring as a Walmington inhabitant besotted with the new GIs in town; while "Time On My Hands" finds a German airman snagged by his parachute on the town hall clock.

In "A Soldier's Farewell", Mainwaring dreams he is Napoleon at Waterloo, with Wilson an elegant Duke of Wellington. Providing stalwart support to the stars are John Laurie, James Beck, Arnold Ridley, Ian Lavender and Bill Pertwee.
