    "Funny and sad"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Goon Show to be better than the print version?

    Its a pity Peter Sellers died so young.


    Any additional comments?

    Some funny moments but it is better to listen to a Goon Show.

    "The Goons interviewed By Parkinson"

    If you are into the Goons or Peter Sellers this is a must have. In fact I would rate it the best material on those subjects available. I never realized what a genius Peter Sellers was - I always knew he was funny and clever but genius I hadn't realized till now. Extremely funny, informative. I can see I will be re listening to this at least once a year.
