Footnotes

  • 'The Idiot Weekly' was a radio show broadcast by the Australian Broadcasting Commission. Thirty eight episodes were aired between June 1958 and November 1962. It starred Spike, John Bluthal, Bobby Limb, Michael Eisdell, Ray Barrett, Peter Carver and John Ewart. The shows revolved around Spike's Goonish humour and included some familiar characters, such as Eccles, but with a strong Australian slant.

    The vendor's husband was a crew-member of the ship on which Spike travelled to Australia early in 1958. Spike was working on this script during the voyage.
