For you comedy fans, and those wishing to (laugh out loud) caution when listening to the MPIR Comedy stream this Saturday morning. You may hurt yourself! The stream will be featuring the British comedy skit show The Goon Show.
The Goon Show is a British radio comedy programme, originally produced and broadcast by the BBC Home Service from 1951 to 1960, with occasional repeats on the BBC Light Programme. The first series broadcast from 28 May to 20 September 1951, was titled Crazy People; subsequent series had the title The Goon Show, a title inspired, according to Spike Milligan, by a Popeye character.
The show's chief creator and main writer was Spike Milligan. The scripts mixed ludicrous plots with surreal humour, puns, catchphrases and an array of bizarre sound effects. Some of the later episodes feature electronic effects devised by the fledgling BBC Radiophonic Workshop, many of which were reused by other shows for decades. Many elements of the shows satire, contemporary life in Britain, parodying aspects of show business, commerce, industry, art, politics, diplomacy, the police, the military, education, class structure, literature and film. The show starred the following comedians: Spike Milligan, Harry Secombe, Peter Sellers and Michael Bentine (1951–1953)
Intermixed within the Saturday playlists are episodes of Burns and Allen Show, Fibber McGee and Molly, Duffy's Tavern, Martin and Lewis Show, Meet Me At Parky's, Phil Harris and Alice Faye Show, The Red Skelton Show and Our Miss Brooks.
