... a Blow Lamp and a Raspberry

Actor and writer Reece Shearsmith presents a wry look at the use of comedy sound effects on British radio, from Children's Hour to The Goon Show and beyond.

He examines the early recording methods of sound engineers and how people such as bandleader and disc jockey Jack Jackson broke new ground in the field of radio effects. Contributors include Roy Hudd, Dick Mills and John Ammonds.
