I remember lots of them and especially listening to the calls between our lads stationed in Germany and elsewhere...2 way Family Favourites possibly. Loved Hancock's Half Hour.
The Billy Cotton Bandshow possibly. Used to sit there with Mum and Dad in Baker Street, absolutely spellbound. We had Radio Rentals radio as well after the electricity came through.
What memories, old fashioned it maybe but still great to think about occasionally. Stuff twitter twatter and FaceBook and texting.  :)

I like listening to Hancock's Half Hour and many of them (along with other 'old' radio shows), are broadcast on BBC Radio 4 extra here:

All of those plus Tommy Handley of "Its that man again" ITMA used to love the rap style ditty rhymes weekly.
  Always remember one in particular. Down in the Jungle ,living in a tent .Better  than a prefab.... No Rent.
And for a bit of excitement Dick Barton.

Jimmy Edwards (of the handlebar moustach)was the one with Ron & Eth. Arthur Askey ( I thank yow & Buzz,buzz, busy bee).Al Read ( any more tea in that joog?). Jack Benny & his out of tune violin ( he was a very accomplished player but not quite good enough to reach the top so changed his profession to comedian).Brings back wonderful memories of life being so simple!

Children's favourites with Uncle Mac was a must. Journey into Space was brilliant. Does anyone remember Life of Bliss? With George Cole and Psyche the dog. Late Hancock's Half Hour was another must. Tragic that he thought he wasn't funny - he was one of the all-time greats. Educating Archie (Peter Brough), Life with the Lyons and the one with Beryl Reid as Monica and Ron & Eth (June whitfield). Lots more, I'm sure but they all bring back happy memories.
