Tommy Handley
It's That Man Again - (VAR32)

Tommy Handley, who was the mainstay of the radio programme ITMA ("It's that man again"), had a long career which also preceded that success. His first major success, and included in this CD, was The Disorderly Room - a skit on army life in which he provides new words to well known tunes of the time. Tommy Handley performed this sketch at the Royal Variety Performance in 1924.

Other tracks from the 1920s and 1930s feature popular songs of the time, as well as Tommy Handley demonstrating the problems of early wireless in Wireless Oscillations and Aggravations.
The CD concludes with Tommy Handley's tips for fuel saving from 1944, and an incident at a railway bookstall in 1932.
