Round the Horne 4 (four early episodes, from 1965 , 2 x tapes)

£3.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

As one of the most consistently funny radio series of the 1960s, "Round the Horne" was always a favourite among listeners to the BBC Light Programme comedy hour, on Sunday afternoon.

With its colourfully bizarre collection of characters, and memorable catch phrases, its brilliantly inventive and sometime outrageous scripts and the smooth, consummate ease with which Kenneth Horne anchored the whole thing, while preserving its fast-moving fluidity, "Round the Horne" was a unique chapter in the history of radio comedy.

Rambling Syd Rumpo, Julian and his "friend" Sandy, Charles and Fiona, Gruntfuttock, Daphne Whitethigh and many more - they're all here. One listen to these four hilarious programmes, and it will all come flooding back. Not only that, but you will feel compelled to listen again, in the immortal words of Lady Counterblast, "many times ... many, mnay times ... many, many, many times ... many, many, many, many times ..."

Here are four early episodes, all from 1965.

Side One : Orig. Transmitted Apr '65.
Side Two : Orig. Transmitted Apr '65.

Side Three : Orig. Transmitted May '65.
Side Four : Orig. Transmitted May '65.
