Song of the Day: The Two Ronnies, “Yeomen of the Guard”

British actor and comedian Ronnie Barker was born on this day in 1929. He was teamed with Ronnie Corbett by the BBC in a show called The Two Ronnies, which ran for 12 seasons. At the end of each show, the two of them would dress in costumes and do a musical sketch in the style of British musical theater. This is "Yeomen of the Guard" from season 8. Barker is the taller of the two men wearing glasses; the shorter man with the glasses is Corbett.

    1. We used to see them late Sunday night and always really enjoyed them. I especially liked the musical finales, always entertaining and hardly ever something you had to send the kids out of the room for. Not that we had any kids, of course…
