Audio Book Summary

Stephen Fry investigates the phenomenon of gibberish - what it is, why we write and speak and sing it, and why we enjoy it so much. Words like 'awaopbopbaloobop awop bam bam' and Bill and Ben's contemporary sounding catchphrase 'blogalog'.

Stephen sets out to unravel some of these threads in the company of Stanley Unwin, George Melly, Gryff Rhys-Jones, Eric and Ernie, Max Bygraves, The Goons, Bill and Ben The Flowerpot Men, and Frank Sinatra, along with experts in language development, in the first ever Radio 4 programme intentionally devoted to the totally unintelligible.
