Have just listened to the lovely Eric in conversation,from a few years back, with Paul Jackson.....it wasn't long before I was chuckling ...just a few hours left to Listen Again to it

The late and much missed Eric Sykes, in conversation with Paul Jackson, reflects back on his radio years writing scripts for Frankie Howerd, Archie Andrews and the Goons.

Listening to it whilst doing some ironing made it much less of a chore

There was a day of Eric Sykes on Radio 4 Extra last week

Here's a selection of the programmes featured

Eric was really clever and one of the greatest funny men ever in my view

I'm sure the programme has to be well worth a listen Smile
