Just a few of my favourite sketches from old 78rpm records, radio and tape. One of my earliest childhood memories is 'The Lost Policeman' by Sandy Powell... then, years later, as teenagers, listening to Blaster Bates on a small, ultra-modern, portable reel-to-reel tape player.

A very small selection of dialect verse including 'Natty Dane' and
'Yorkshire Horse Dealers'.
