Warner Bros. Records
WARNER BROS. RECORDS INC. is an American major record label established in 1958 as the foundation label of the present-day Warner Music Group (WMG), and now operates as a wholly owned subsidiary of that corporation. Warner Bros. Records was established on March 19, 1958, as the recorded-music division of the American film studio Warner Bros. For most of its early existence it was one of a group of labels owned and operated by larger parent corporations. The sequence of companies that controlled Warner Bros. and its allied labels evolved through a convoluted series of corporate mergers and acquisitions from the early 1960s to the early 2000s. Over this period, Warner Bros. Records grew from a struggling minor player in the music industry to become one of the top recording labels in the world. In 2003, these music assets were divested by their then owner Time Warner and purchased by a private equity group

The first series broadcast from 28 May to 20 September 1951, was titled CRAZY PEOPLE; subsequent series had the title The Goon Show, a title inspired, according to Spike Milligan, by a Popeye character . The show's chief creator and main writer was Spike Milligan . The scripts mixed ludicrous plots with surreal humour , puns, catchphrases and an array of bizarre sound effects . Some of the later episodes feature electronic effects devised by the fledgling BBC Radiophonic Workshop , many of which were reused by other shows for decades. Many elements of the show satirised contemporary life in Britain, parodying aspects of show business, commerce, industry, art, politics, diplomacy, the police, the military, education, class structure, literature and film
