The Goon Show British Radio Comedy app give you access to 154 episodes of the Goon Show radio program plus 75 episodes from Hancock Half Hour radio show.
The Goon Show,a British radio comedy program, was originally produced and broadcast 1951 to 1960.
The show's chief creator and main writer was Spike Milligan. The scripts mixed ludicrous plots with surreal humor, puns, catchphrases and an array of bizarre sound effects. Many elements of the show satirized contemporary life in Britain, parodying aspects of show business, commerce, industry, art, politics, diplomacy, the police, the military, education, class structure, literature and film.
Hancock's Half Hour is a radio comedy, and later television comedy, series of the 1950's and 60's written by Ray Galton and Alan Simpson. The series starred Tony Hancock, with Sid James; the radio version also co-starred, at various times, Moira Lister, Andrée Melly, Hattie Jacques, Bill Kerr and Kenneth Williams.
Comedian Tony Hancock starred in the show, playing an exaggerated and much poorer version of his own character and lifestyle, Anthony Aloysius St John Hancock, a down-at-heel comedian living at the dilapidated 23 Railway Cuttings in East Cheam.
The series was influential in the development of the situation comedy, with its move away from radio variety towards a focus on character development.

Classic British comedy
Love this app!
Works well. Pity the episodes aren't available for download so they can be listened to offline. However, for $0.99 for access to all 100+ episodes, it's a steal.
Very pleased to have found a piece of my childhood (would listen to episodes on the way to school in my teens) and will be recommending this app to family and friends.
Great show. Poor app
I am a big fan of the Goon Show and thought that this app would be a great way to listen. It is not. There are two Hugh flaws. First, you can’t mark episodes as “listened to”. Every time I open the app, it is the first time. Second, the app only plays for about 20 minutes at a time. It stops in the middle of an episode for no reason. If you restart, you can only play the episode from the beginning- there is no memory of where it stopped and I can’t find any way to manual advance.
