Arthur Askey CD
Arthur Askey, known as "Big Hearted Arthur" and noted for his radio programme "Band Waggon", was an all round entertainer. On this CD he treats us to some of his silly novelty songs. Most famous of these is The Bee, in which Arthur Askey imagines himself "Flying round the garden, the sweetest ever seen, taking back the honey to the dear old queen".

Also included on the CD are some rare ENSA recordings from Arthur Askey, as well as an appeal for Fuel Economy issued during the days of rationing and general shortage.
