Goon Show recordings are still broadcast on the digital radio station BBC 7 (now Radio 4 Extra).

The ABC Radio National network in Australia did broadcast the Goon Show from the 1960s until 2014.

The network attempted to ‘retire’ the series in 2004, but after an overwhelming listener response, broadcasts of the show resumed later the same year. This reprieve was short-lived though, and the show remains off air in Australia.

The ABC’s broadcasts did contribute to the Goon Show becoming one of the longest-running (and most repeated) radio programs of all time.
