the old and the new

I recently went on some long car journeys and spent a fair chunk of time listening to the JAM CDs, especially the Classic series including the relatively recent Collection. It's interesting to hear an old show and then a new one.

This will be a controversial statement perhaps but I have a feeling the older shows are better, funnier. In their different ways Peter Jones, Derek Nimmo and Clement Freud are all very funny but it is Kenneth Williams who provides the high points. It is a wonderful thing that we have so many of these old shows around to enjoy.
