My brother-in-law once gave Older Son some home-made cds of complete  
sets of The Goon Show and Round the Horne (I did not ask the source of  
them - probably off the Internet someplace). The Goons were a huge hit  
with the kid (he still listens to them years later), but Round the  
Horne not so much. My husband and I eventually appropriated those - WE  
loved them. We borrow the Goons off him once in a while too. Love 'em.
