Anybody know if they're available on recordings? I have one small collection of Goon-show bits on CD, but what I really miss is the 'A Dustbin of Milligan' collection and 'Bridge over the River Wye' that my dad has on vinyl.

The BBC has issued around thirty double CDs of Goon shows, each containing four episodes - should be fairly easy to find either on their site or via Amazon.

*knocking at door*
Min: Who's there?
Ned: it's me!
Min: theres a man called 'me' at the door
Crun: Me- he'll have to prove it! -You out there?
Ned: yes?
Crun: prove you're me!
Ned: Alright I'm henry crun
Crun: Thats me- minnie open the door & let me in!

I grew up listening to tapes of the goons, grew down listening to them backwards & grew sideways while listening to them on disc. in short I did a lot of growing & not much listening- either way Spike has warped me mind for life- Hurrah!

...
if you didn't have the Goon Show, you wouldn't have Monty Python
...

And Firesign Theatre! (the late 60's American-hippie-college version of the Goons?  The still born twin of Python?)

...the goats?
The *ghost*, sweet prince.
Me thought they spoke of *goats* upon the battlement.
Nay, *ghosts* me lord!
Well, be he ghost or goat or ghost o' goat or both,  our spirits need to goad my spirits on!


Not nearly as silly, but I spewed plenty of milk through my nose.

That would have been a just few years before he died , then?  If anyone could fit into a Dalek, well, it;d have been Uncle Jimmy..
Grandad was born in Clitheroe, like Jimmy, and we all share the same last name (Clitheroe)).. One day, I'll make it over the pond and see the old home town.
Grandad emigrated after WWII..  I have a formal pic of me as a lad, you can see the family resemblance when you look at Jimmy in pics of him in his younger days.
