Publisher's Summary

A never-before-heard collection of archive recordings of the wit and wisdom of Linda Smith - a "national treasure" of Radio 4 and BBC TV. (Links are narrated by Hattie Hayridge.)

In this brilliant anthology Linda's fans can now hear original recordings of her live performances, never before heard by the public, compiled and edited by her partner of 23 years, Warren Lakin. These recordings were made for her own private use, and this is the definitive collection of Linda's work on audio.

Critic Reviews

"Linda Smith's everyday conversation contained more jokes than most comedy scripts and more social comment than most dramas." (Independent)

For dedicated fans only.

It sounds like it was recorded under someone's coat while they were sitting in the back row.
These were recorded for her own private use, and I'm sure they serve that purpose, but they are very disappointing if you buy this to listen to in the car.

I Think the Nurses are Stealing My Clothes

I was very disappointed with this download I did not realise that Linda Smith got her laughs by using foul language during her live shows. I listened to abt ten mins before turning it off. I really liked and enjoyed her comedy when I heard her on the radio in various quiz shows; which was why I purchased this book.

Not the best aound quality

These are personal recordings made by Linda and so the sound quality is not always the best, which is a pity as I thought she was a wonderfully funny lady.
