Let’s slide down the time pipe and head on over to the local music hall for some bawdy entertainment and naughty company.
Errors and omissions in this episode.
I forgot to mention that some of the recordings in this show date to before the First World War and that the reason so many music hall stars were recorded in the 1930S was because Music Hall enjoyed a brief revival.
The correct title of the comedy series I mentioned is Tales from the Mausoleum Club not Tales of the Mausoleum Club.
