My dad introduced me to this series via some BBC audio releases and it is up there with the funniest shows ever - surprised not to find a thread already devoted to it, so I've started this one!
For anyone who is unfamiliar, it ran in the mid 1960s and was a follow up to an earlier series fronted by the same chap, Kenneth Horne who holds the risque anarchy together like a syrup-voiced glue.
It also stars Kenneth Williams (in a variety of guises including half of Julian and Sandy and the great Rambling Syd Rumpo - he wrote in his diaries that working on this series was the only time he was happy), Bill Pertwee from "Dad's Army", Betty Marsden, Hugh Paddick (the other half of Julian and Sandy - best known to modern comedy fans as one of the actors in Blackadder the Third) and a riotuous audience for almost every episode.
If anyone gets the chance i would strongly recommend listening to some of these.
