As The Lad is such a part of British comedy, anyone mind if I post a random jotting here and there as I work my way through the radio series?
Some of the early ones are quite far fetched in terms of plot (e.g The Monte Carlo Rally, The Rail Strike) and unlike the ones mentioned above (The Last Bus Home and Sunday Afternoon At Home) wouldn't have transfered to television.
I would have loved to see SAAH on TV! 'Squint man, squint!'
But the characters are developing into those we know from later series.
So, just finished The Chef That Died of Shame.
Young man gains wealth and fame which he can't handle, falls from the pinnacle of his profession into a drunken haze, loses everything.
