Another link with the greatest comedy series of all time has been severed with the death of Max Geldray age 88. Know as "Conks" in the Goon Show, he was credited as the world's first jazz harmonica player and played with the great Django Reinhardt in the 1930s. Sadly missed.

A final 'pludgee' from Conks. Never mind, mate, it's keeping the rain off your tie.

....and provided the occasional extra voice when needed. Great memories. Thanks, Conks.

There will be none of the heroes of my youth left soon. Bon voyage Max.

fortunately we can still listen to the surviving work of the Goons & because of that they will never die.

sandra (surprisingly philosophical at this late hour)

ads for Django stuff below which I will avoid as I have around 16 of his albums

Oh dear Oh dear another great name gone.
Is Ray Ellington still around? If so he must be the last survivor.

A great shame.... it used to be the bit in the record (too young to listen to it on radio originally), when I went to get a drink but after a while I stopped and listened.   It's responsible for my rediscovered love of jazz.

RIP Mr. Geldray.
I believe Ray Ellington passed away some years back.
