Between 1965 and 1969 the successor to Beyond Our Ken ruled the airwaves. The show was scripted by Barry Took and Marty Feldman with music from the Fraser Hayes Four. Kenneth Horne was the golden-voiced straight man of the show, with the incredible comic talents of Kenneth Williams, Betty Marsden, Hugh Paddick and Bill Pertwee taking on the guise of a score of characters in fast and funny sketches. Its zany humour will always be remembered as a high point of 60s radio. In Round The Horne III you can hear Armpit Theatre's parody of thirties Chicago gangsters in Little Caesar, an episode of the Round The Horne version of The Three Musketeers, a western adventure starring Kenneth Williams as the Palone Ranger, and Williams again as the mysterious, hynotic figure of Svengali in the Round the Horne version of Trilby. There's Rambling Syd Rumpo too, and Daphne Whitethigh, Charles and Fiona, and a great deal of Julian and Sandy - whose camp drolleries made them perhaps the most liberated chatacers of the swinging sixties - and much more.
