ISIRTA

Like Superman on the radio (great for the imagination), likewise Journey Into Space, or the TeleGoons. Showing my age now!!

Very funny. Especially the song 'Bounce!'

British Bouncing Corporation! Genius.

ISIRTA - (I'm Sorry, I'll Read That Again) - what a brilliant comedy radio programme! You have excellent taste, starz92. John Cleese, Bill Oddie, Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden, Jo Kendall and David Hatch. And I think Bill Oddie wrote the music as well. Was anyone else a fan?

OH MY GOD... You've never lived. Despite being a teenager and Being at the age where most would go out to skulk in some council grounds and terrorize the locals, I am quite content to listen to ISIRTA, just aminute, i'm sorry I haven't a clue, round the horne, Hhhhhhhhhhancock (which as a three year old I was obsessed with) Steptoe and Son (You dehty old man!) and Dead Ringers after I've cooked meself a nice meal.
Strange???

Not strange at all - I love comedy on the radio. You must be listening to BBC7, you've listed some major classics there. Which is your favourite Hancock episode?

I listened to the new Ade Edmondson comedy "Teenage Kicks" on Saturday lunchtime, whilst I was cooking a not-very-nice meal, (I'm guessing you're a better cook than I am, starz!), and I don't think I laughed once.

I heard a bit of that, as well. At first I thought I was listening to the 'Young Ones', because Ade Edmondson was just doing his voice from the Young Ones character he played (the one I've promptly forgotten) the one with the four studs in his head (was it Eddie?).

Yup, Vivian or Vivien, dunno how to spell it.
I like the classic Blood Donor- but that's nearly everyone's favourite. So perhaps either Radio Ham or the one where Bill Kerr and Sid James are at a poetry place with loads of creepy people with 'auras' and Hancock has joined them by wearing flip-flops, or something. Then the two previously mentioned amaze the group (apart from Hancock) with poems such as 'Rinky tinky on purple grass, the bamboo shoots up, down and everywhere in the yellow cosmos' Or something. I like the freaky poet who does Straw in the Wind. Aaaaaah- it brings it all back! I have a record player (which is my pride and joy) and collect old records. I have loads of old comedies on record, so I am always stocked with all my favourite comedians etc. I swear I only have ONE Kate Bush album... honest...

When old people say 'what was your first record?' to each other, it's all blues or Marc Bolan or something. With me it was George Formby's little stick of blackpool rock!
I also have a lot of Flander's and Swann on the little 'His master's voice' records. So- what were your first records?

Yes, the Radio Ham is one of my favourites, too - and I like the Poetry Society as well. Have you heard "Twelve Angry Men"? I think that's my top favourite.

We have talked about people's first singles here: http://www.bringitback.ecclesweb.co.uk/ ... hlight=ham where I confessed that my first bought recording was Tony Hancock's Blood Donor/Radio Ham. Sounds like you're building up a great comedy collection! :)

Yup. My second one was a double pack of Hancock, Blood Donor and Radio Ham on one of the records and I forget what was on the other.

Come on Starz, admit it. You are not the spring chicken that you claim to be - you are really an old crusty like the rest of us... sorry like some of us.... well, some of them (pinting at no-one in particular :twisted: )

While you list some true radio classics, you seem to have missed the king of radio comedy - the Goons!

(And don't knck the mighty Kate Bush either - although she sounds a bit too modern for you :shock: )

Eccles... what are you doing here? Everybody gotta be somewhere!
My name is Scoop Bluebottle...

Sorry... forgot the goons... am I forgiven? Oh- and Hounds of Love is the best song by Kate Bush. It has to be. I mean really.

I'm walking backwards for Christmas, across the Irish Sea
I'm walking backwards for Christmas
It's the only thing for me
I've tried walking sideways,
And walking to the front
But people just laugh at me and say
'It's a publicity stunt'
So I'm walking backwrads for Christmas
To prove that I love you!
