On Radio 4 Extra

I'm a fan of Michael Crawford so didn't need much persuasion to listen to this and up to now it's been a delight listening to him reading extracts from his autobiography

Episode 1

Actor and singer Michael Crawford reads from his autobiography, including some Frank Spencer-like moments at the births of his two daughters.

Glad you have discovered Tony Hancock, littlepieces, I heard his shows first time around in the 1950s and always loved him. In fact, in my loft, I still have the scrapbook devoted to him Smile.

Re the Goons, always loved them too Laughing

I was born in 71 so catching up a bit later.I do wonder how many of today's stuff will be repeated 50 years from now?
