    not forgetting Peter Scott on duck call! he was the only nature bloke on telly in the 1950s/60s and really posh so hilarious to hear him getting in the groove with Hitler and Val Doonican (as himself)! If you love this look out for Vivian Stanshall's book Rawlinson's End

    Been looking for this for years! Thanks!

    Loved the Bonzos since I picked up an American LP that starts with Urban Spaceman & then the entire Doughnut in Granny's Greenhouse, about '74. I'd recently seen Neil Innes when he toured across Canada with Monty Python's stage show. That was years before the Americans picked up on Python or British comedy in general. Canada's CBC showed the Python TV series same time as in Britain!

    fu5ki1ng shite

  19. Abc Bcde says:

    'Roy Rogers on Trigger' (@ 2:00) always makes me giggle!

  20. theBaron0530 says:

    I haven't heard this since Dr Demento used to play it on his show.
    I wonder how many of the references people today can get.

  21. Alistair Mcneillie says:

    years before mike oldfield.

  22. Lyn Devonport says:

    Thanks for uploading this. I had it until recently when I sold all my vinyl. Nice!

  23. Graham D says:

    No tounge in cheek tracks like this anymore. Today's artistes try too hard and take themselves too seriously.
    No fun element in music anymore.

  24. Jukebox Jonnie says:

    I've never heard anything like it.. I'm in hysterics – That's brilliant 😀
