Laughing Lhursday*

* [For first time visitors]:
Typo in the title? Nah. It's just that I would not let a tiny T spoil
an avantgardistic alliteration.

In 1975 Gwyn Thomas appeared on the Kane at Christmas programme. As these few brief excerpts show, it was a hilarious performance that is still fondly remembered by many to this day. Listen again to the great talker as he explains the dangers of Rugby, the funeral of Cliff Davies, the legend of the buried city of Kenfig, stolen false teeth,the problem with singing and the perils of adultery.


  1. This one was very good but I also enjoyed his reminiscence about what happened when a Welch coal miner died by accident and was carried home. My dad was a miner in Northern England and my grandfather too. Things were much the same.

    1. So you watched Gwyn Thomas on Mining in Wales.
      Yes. Like a rose is a rose, miners are miners.
