Starring: Peter Sellers, Harry Secombe and Spike Milligan
BBC Audio
RRP: £13.25

Available 28 April 2011

Four more classic episodes starring Peter Sellers, Harry Secombe and Spike Milligan. In these episodes, Neddie attempts to swim across the Regent’s Park Canal with the help of a bottle of green liquid, the Russians force a satellite into the ionosphere (filthy swines), two crooks insure Neddie’s life for ten thousand pounds and postman Neddie gets stolen...

Volume 28 - The Indigestion Waltz is the latest collection of classic The Goon Show episodes from the BBC. The four episodes here have been cherry picked from the show's eighth series and include:

The Great Regent’s Park Swim - Series 8, Episode 4 (21 October 1957)

The Space Age - Series 8, Episode 6 (04 November 1957)

The Policy - Series 8, Episode 9 (25 November 1957)

The Stolen Postman - Series 8, Episode 11 (09 December 1957)

As it looks like the BBC are slowly releasing all of these episodes, I can't quite work out why they aren't doing so in their original broadcast order. However, the fact they're publishing them at all is a good thing.

The title "The Indigestion Waltz" comes from a song that is sung in The Policy - in case you were wondering.

To be honest none of these episodes come anywhere near "classic" Goon status, but they're entertaining enough.
