The glums<br />

Frank Muir and Dennis Nordens scripts are timelessly funny these sketches are each 15 minutes in length and June Whitfield Jimmy Edwards and Dick Bentley bring this helpless family to life. exceptionally funny I must have listened to this dozens of times first on tape. then downloaded onto Audible. there are more scripts I have a book of them. please BBC release what you have.

Memories

Listening once again to June Bromfield,Dick Bentley and that erstwhile typically British Jimmy Edwards brought back memories of my childhood listening on the radio to their wonderfully entertaining humourous shows. Along with others such as "Much Binding in The Marsh" and The Goons they introduced me to the adroit style of British humour which has formed the basis of my own sense of humour.

Marvelous

I just love it. I use to hear it when I was a girl. It's such simplistic fun.
