That update made me snort tea.

The 'Piano Theme' from Spike Milligan's 'Q'.

Oh, lord, that's wonderful. "And with that haunting Milligan theme sounding the death-knell of all postal piano tuition courses ..."

I miss the Goon Show.

What are we going to do now? What are we going to do now? What are we going to do now? What are we going to do now? What are we going to do now? What are we going to do now?

That bit used to freak me right out.

Brrrrrrr.

There's another version of that Q theme, where Spike M keeps trying to join in, then the song stops, and he stops, then it starts again. It might be the funniest thing I have ever heard in my life, but like so many things, I taped it off the Mark Radcliffe show about ten years ago, and now I can't find it.

I think you'd better nip out and buy more fudge to appease the update!

Never mind missing the Goon Show, I miss Spike. Did you ever read his self-penned Obituary?

It think it could take more than a bit of fudge! Shame on you, James......

I loved the Spike Milligan books!
