Julian and Sandy were a pair of characters who appeared regularly from 1965-68 on the BBC radio programme Round the Horne. The duo were played by Hugh Paddick (Julian) and Kenneth Williams (Sandy), and the pair would interact with the show's host, Kenneth Horne, in a series of smut-laden performances.
Their sketches followed a particular pattern: Horne would recount an event from the previous week that involved a chance meeting with Julian and Sandy, a couple of out of work actors who were "just filling in" at an establishment until their next acting role. These encounters purported to involve Horne in a quest for the seemingly innocent, such as a haircut, booking a holiday, buying a new suit, by way of an advert in a dodgy magazine. But this was subverted at every turn by Julian and Sandy's high camp, as they raised the art of insinuation and double-entendre to a whole new level.
The team preparing the material for the performers was Barry Took and Marty Feldman, a great writing partnership that only finished when Kenneth Horne died after the fourth series of Round the Horne, and Feldman decided to concentrate on his performing.
For your listening pleasure, an example of the masterful camp of Julian and Sandy. Bona!
