There are no more readily recognisable vowels than those of Kenneth Williams. That distinctive voice was honed on radio – from a gallery of supporting characters in Hancock’s Half Hour, via the lunacy of Dr. Chou N. Ginsberg and Rambling Syd in Round the Horne to legendary appearances on Just A Minute. Listeners lapped up his verbal dexterity and haughty wit – so have your nostrils flared and your best impression ready as BBC 7 prepares to say ”Ooh no, stop messin’ about!”
