Dad's Army - The Radio Shows


Don't tell him, Pike!

Continuing the war theme, here's all three series of the Dad's Army radio shows - adapted from telly. I thought I'd add it as it was made with money extorted from us Brits (much like war itself!), but keep it quiet - loose lips and all that.

After this well-loved sit-com had finished, the characters had mixed fortunes. Private Walker did well selling his crisps of course, Sergeant Wilson built a sporting goods empire and Mrs Fox made a fortune from her biscuits, as well as having chart success with the hit 'Imagine Me, Imagine You'.

Alas, Captain Mainwaring fell on hard times - and still works in Walmington-on-Sea, for one of the larger supermarket chains.



Not ripped by me, bitrates vary but each half hour show is about 5Mb - 7Mb. Sound quality is just fine. Archives can be extracted independently.

Series 1 + 'The Story of..' 166Mb
Series 2 143Mb
Series 3 178Mb
