The Western Brothers
Play the Game - (VAR29)

The Western Brothers had their peak of popularity during the 1930s and early 1940s. Satirising the Upper Classes was their main form of comedy. Particular targets were the BBC and the public school. Such was their popularity that their record company had special picture labels made, which used "The old school tie" as part of the label design. They had an effective dig at German propaganda in their wartime recordings mimicing the broadcasts of Lord Haw Haw.
