    Adrian Juste presented a Saturday lunchtime show for many years in the 80s, where he would play records interspersed with clips from BBC series like Hancock.
    I remember him laughing in a forced sort of way after the sketches!

      Yes, and he would pretend to have conversations with Hancock or whomever it was, responding to the lines from the clips.

      All Gas and Gaiters was a clerical sitcom that I think transferred to TV.

      The wonderful Round the Horne ended in 1968 with Kenneth Horne's death, and I was too young to listen to it, but thanks to repeats on 4 Extra I have heard all the episodes several times over. Very risque for the time with classic characters like Rambling Sid Rumpo, and Julian and Sandy.

        I liked anything Peter Cook did on radio, especially his Sven Of Swiss Cottage call-ins.

        Did anyone listen to I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again? I know there was at least one LP record from it. It was followed by I'm Sorry I haven't A Clue.
