Goon Show fans (stand up, Roger--oh, you are standing up) will be delighted to know that next Tuesday, 29 May, is Goons Night on the Beeb: from 7 to 10.30 p.m. Radio 2 will be broadcasting ... oh, all kinds of Goon Show stuff--buy your own Radio Times!

Steve

P.S. There is a musical connection here, I just can't put my finger on it ...

Right, Moriarty - just slip this modern-type copy of the Radio Times into your cardboard and string scanner, will you? Now press certain butuons. Another 85p saved!

7.00-10.30 Goons Night

Introduction

7.10 Spike's Pick of the Goons Spike Milligan presents his favourite edition, The Fear of Wages, originally broadcast in March 1956 Starring Peter Sellers, Harry Secombe and Spike Milligan. With the Ray Ellington Quartet, Max Geldray and the Wally Stott Orchestra. The announcer is Wallace Greenslade.

7.40 Comedian's Goons Today's comics pick their favourite Goon Showclips. Including Harry Hill, Al Murray and Lee Hurst. Producers Steve Doherty and John Pidgeon.

8.00 At Last the Go On Show A revised edition of the programme celebrating the 40th anniversary of The Goons. Featuring Spike Milligan, Harry Secombe, Michael Bentine and Peter Sellers With Graham Stark, Eric Sykes, Dennis Main Wilson, Charles Chilton, John Browell, George Chisholm and Angela Morley. Producer Dirk Muggy (R)

9.00 Just before Goonrise Denis Norden looks back at comedy on the radio during the years following the Second World War and traces the early broadcasting careers of The Goons members. Producer Richard Edis

9.30 Goon Again: the 50th Anniversary Cardboard Replica Goon Show Ten years in preparation, this recording from March 2001 rescues some of Spike Milligan's best Goons scripts which would otherwise remain unperformed and unread.

Oh, blessings upon you, Mr Parkes.

I am too mean and curmudgeonly to buy RT, so I keep missing things like this as my free listings thingies all print radio programs in a typeface too small for my deteriorating eyesight to encompass.

I shall be there, cassettes ready, to record the events for posteriors.

Thanks again, Steve.

Will this be available on the 'net? And if so, 7PM in whose time zone? Greenwich, undoubtedly, I suppose.

I should explain this to any Mudcatters who are looking at this and thinking "another wasted thread". On second thought, no I won't, the cat wants to go out. How do I know? He's put on his hat and coat. Why can't he just wear a knitted pullover like the dog?

Alison, you beat me to it. Would some kind-hearted or lunged or livered or kidneyed Brit soul tape the whole show for me? I'll pay all expenses, tapes, postage, fish and chips and curried eggs. Please/

Herself has promised me she'll record this for me next Tuesday evening. It'll take about 3 tapes. I don't have tape-to-tape dub capacity at the moment so I'm not the best person to do dupes. BUT
IF no-one else does it
IF she remembers/stays awake to turn the tapes over
IF I can get a friend to dupe for me (he doesn't share my musical taste and bravely did some tapes for me in the past despite this!)
I will do so.
THEN I'll tell those who don't already have my E-mail what it is (can't PM as I remain cookie-less GUEST here at work) and we'll work something out. Perhaps sending tapes to one person in Canada/US/Australia to take orders from the others?
I wouldn't want anything back, just send a bung to Mudcat instead.
RtS (keep up lad)

Radio 2 ("cjampion of Folk music"!) is launching a new Folk site (see here). It says it's due to appear on May 23rd--hey, taht's today! It doesn't say what time; presumably it hasn't started yet. I'll start a new thread to anounce the news.

Checking their website, it looks like it will not be on-line. However, I e-mailed a request for it, and asked them to post it here if it is possible. Let's hope for the best (and maybe pester them into doing it!)
