MP3 resurrected the radio star

They say that many a comic

has died a death on stage

back in the days before telly

their acts were all the rage

They’d record their gags in a studio

in front of a selective few

and transmit it across the radio

where the humour seemed fresh and new

They’d still do their thing in the theatre

and have audiences rolling in aisles

but the broadcasts took planning and edits

so they had to wait for a while

Telly another performance

they had their audiences wait

they’d appear after five – most times live

after sports shows were on around eight

thankfully recordings they kept back

and sold on video or CD

but now recordings are better

through digital form – MP3

so sit back and listen to the classics

like these comics had never gone away

laughing at jokes, gags and sketches

performed like they were in the day.
