Ben Lawes
Because I look a Fool (CDR42)

Ben Lawes started his recording career in the cylinder phonograph era, playing the part of a country yokel who apparently was none toe clever. Later in his career, Ben Lawes was a popular broadcaster and also a performer of "potted-plays" of around five minutes duration. His record The little Wireless Set I made at home is interesting for its portrayal of early broadcasting in England. Have a listen to the audio clip and revive a forgotten talent.
