...

This sounds good!  Smile

From the Slapstick website Slapstick website

‘The Goodies: The Musical Phenomenon
with Bill Oddie
SUN 28 JAN 0930hrs Watershed £8.00/£6.00
 
The much-loved television comedy series The Goodies drew tens of millions of fans each week in 1974-75. An exceptional feature of the show, however, was Bill Oddie’s series of extraordinary musical compositions, which exploded into the mainstream pop charts, while songs such as ‘The Inbetweeners ‘and ‘Funky Gibbon’ became top selling chart hits.  Tim, Bill and Graeme found themselves appearing on Top of The Pops alongside the top musical acts of the time.
Bill Oddie in conversation with author and comedy historian Robert Ross talks candidly about his work writing songs for the long running TV series, their chart successes, and what it was like being bona fide pop star in the 70s.’

My write up of the event from the recent C&G newsletter.

'The Goodies: The Musical Phenomenon Sunday 28th January

With Bill and author and comedy historian Robert Ross.
This was a fantastic Sunday morning event at Slapstick for any
fans of the Goodies!
It was a very detailed walk through The Goodies history, from
Bill’s own perspective. Focusing on the musical side of The
Goodies. And showing a mixture of Goodies clips.
Starting off, they played each of the 3 theme tunes (!970,
1973 and 1975).
And some Funky Gibbon of course. Also ‘Needed’ with the chaps
getting on the bike and falling off in Beefeaters. And from
The Music Lovers ‘Philomonic Glee Club’ with the chaps setting
up a music festival on Hackney Marshes.
Before the end of the session. They opened the room to a Q&A.
Some good questions came forward and one asking about the DVD
boxset release. Aaannnd... Read on to the next section!'
