Today marks the centenary of Sir Harry Secombe (he died in 2001): a stalwart of The Goon Show, the occasional stand-in for Tony Hancock, tenor-balladeer (‘If I Ruled the World’), actor, and TV presenter (Songs of Praise, Highway…). Sep 8, 2021 | Comedy, Ramblings | 2 comments Harry sings ‘Nessun dorma’. 2 Comments Andrew Keener on September 8, 2021 at 8:27 am Ah, the Goon seemingly without the psychological hang-ups of the other two – a great combination. And he could sing, a natural and powerful tenor voice, a likeable, intelligent musician. Col, do you know whether his Philips LPs of opera duets with Myrna Rose and Adele Leigh have ever made it to silver plastic? Worth hearing – not least for his ‘Nessun Dorma’ on the latter album. Happy Birthday Neddy Seagoon!

Nessun dorma now embedded, above. Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
