It was during the 70’s that Eric and Ernie appeared in their own radio show.  the idea was nothing new as we have seen in other posts, Dads Army and Steptoe and Son to name but two also popped up on radio.
Three series were made for the BBC, totalling 18 episodes and broadcast between 1975 and 1978.
