The Clithero Kid

The Clitheroe Kid was a BBC Radio comedy show featuring diminutive Northern comic Jimmy Clitheroe in the role of a cheeky schoolboy, who lived with his family at Lilac Avenue in an unnamed town in the North of England. The pilot show, pilot series, and 16 subsequent series, totalling 290 episodes in all, were originally broadcast between April 1957 and August 1972 and tickled the funny bones of millions across the world.

The shows are now public domain and available here daily at 6pm for reminiscence and to thrill those who never knew of the vintage radio show.
