The Goon Show

The Goon Show, first on radio in the 1950s and then on television in the 1960s was very influential on young persons then growing up, and also on the later British comedy shows such as Monty Python.

It was also of interest in having two transsexual persons in the crew.

The musical director was Wally Stott, who in the mid 1970s would become Angela Morley.

The puppets for the Telegoons were designed by Eric Rutherford who became Erica about the same time.
