9781408467718: The Goon Show: Series Four, Part One (The Golden Age Of BBC Radio) (The Golden Age of BBC Radio Comedy)

The History of Communications/The Siege of Khartoum (23 January 1954), The Expedition for Toothpaste (12 February 1954), Western Story (22 March 1954), and The Great Bank of England Robbery (12 April 1954). The Goons included Spike Milligan, Peter Sellers, and Harry Secombe. They burst onto the radio with surreal storylines, absurd logic, puns, catch phrases, and groundbreaking sound effects. These four superb episodes—three of which have never been available on audio before, and have been specially restored for this release—show why The Goon Show deservedly belongs to the Golden Age of Comedy, and how it inspired generations of comedians to come.
