The Goon Show Summary


The Goon Show: Volume 19: Ned's Atomic Dustbin by Spike Milligan

Goon but not forgotten: 'The Goons' ruled the airwaves in the 1950s, the most celebrated and influential clowns in the history of radio. GO ON - help engine driver Neddie foil the Great Train Robbers of snow-bound Pevensey Bay, explore the exotic delights of Shangri La (It sounds like Utopia but it's spelled differently), follow King Arthur Seagoon as he searches for the lost treasure of Tintagel (if you count the famous Eccles it's twice knightly) and ride Niagara Falls in Ned's foolproof (well, it proves them all fools) atomic dustbin. Yes folks, it's another crazy quartet of unforgettable vintage Goonery from those wily wireless wizards Peter Sellers, Spike Milligan and Harry Secombe. They've been through hell to get here. There must be a cooler route.
