Introducing GSMC Classics: Parsley Sidings, a delightful journey back in time to the early 1970s with this BBC Radio sitcom created by the ingenious Jim Eldridge. Join us as we rediscover the charm and humor of this classic radio show, brought to life by a stellar cast including the legendary Arthur Lowe and Ian Lavender, known for their roles in the iconic sitcom Dad’s Army, along with Kenneth Connor from the beloved Carry On films.

Set in a quaint and sleepy town nestled along the main railway line between London and Birmingham, Parsley Sidings invites listeners to immerse themselves in the daily antics of the eccentric characters that inhabit this picturesque setting. At the heart of the narrative is Mr. Horace Hepplewhite, the affable station master portrayed with impeccable wit by Arthur Lowe. Alongside him is his bumbling yet endearing son, Bertrand, played by the talented Ian Lavender, adding a touch of familial charm to the proceedings.

Kenneth Connor shines in the role of Percy Valentine, the station porter whose misadventures often provide a source of laughter and amusement. Not content with just one role, Connor also delights audiences with his portrayal of Mr. Bradshaw, the hapless signalman, and even lends his voice to Clara, the station hen, showcasing his versatility as a performer.

Liz Fraser brings her own brand of sass and charisma to the character of Gloria Simpkins, the station tannoy announcer whose announcements often veer into the realm of absurdity, much to the amusement of listeners. With a supporting cast that includes the likes of Bill Pertwee from Dad’s Army and Roger Delgado, known for his iconic portrayal of The Master in Doctor Who, each episode of Parsley Sidings promises a delightful blend of humor, wit, and nostalgia.
