THINKING SIDEWAYS

Synopsis

Named for Spike’s explanation of his sense of humour – ‘I’m Irish – we think sideways’ – this BBC radio anthology provides unique insight into his genius. Plus, we hear Spike’s favourite Goon Show episode, 'Fear of Wages', and some magical poems from both Spike’s Poems and an award-winning documentary in which Spike’s three daughters discuss how their father’s serious poetry reflected his life and personality.
