Do you remember 'Happydrome', with 'Ramsbottom and Enoch and me'?
"We three on Happydrome
Working for the BBC
Ramsbottom and Enoch and me"......"Over to you, Enoch - Back to you Ramsbottom"
Then there was the character who always began his routine with:
The day war broke out, my missus said to me........
'Loopy Lou' on Workers' Playtime, who always ended with a song with the
When you are in trouble, and you don't know what to do
Just write your names on five pound notes and send to Loopy Lou
(I had NEVER even seen a £5 note when I listened to that!)
Comedians who ALWAYS ended with a song, no matter how awful their voice!......
Ahhhh -- "Much Binding in the Marsh" -- that's very close to my favourite;
how many listers remember "Take It From Here" with Ben Lyon, Bebe Daniels
and Professor Jimmy Edwards? Especially Jimmy Edwards' outraged howl (when
another cast member did something particularly "saft"): "Yooouuu ...
cllummmsyy ... CLLODD!!!" (or was it "clot"?) It was a bit hard to tell for
sure, because I was "listening in" to the BBC on short wave from 7000 miles
away in Argentina, and the fading, static, interference, etc., made "staying
tuned in" a full-time occupation! We also listened to The Merchant Navy
Programme, which kept me up-to-date on pop music -- although, since this was
not part of the BBC's Home Service, other listers may not remember it.....Roger
And was it not Billy Cotton's Band Show at lunch time aswell? Wakey Wakey!!.....Linda B
