a lot of very special things are fifty years old in 2009 and the radio comedy The Navy Lark is fifty years old on the 29th March. I’m far too young to remember it first time around, but I am currently enjoying the humour aboard the HMS Troutbridge all over again on BBC Radio 7. The station is also running some “specials” about some of the famous actors who featured in it and some of the famous episodes.
The quite splendid Leslie Philips is fronting the first special on Saturday 28th March. Well h-e-l-l-o Mr Philips LOL, the original smoothie lounge lizard.
