Contains Mike Hardings Man United song!
NOTICE Please note that this is a product of the 70s, and attitudes have changed. This is a warning that the title of one of the sketches may cause offence (no, not Man United). Mike Harding is not really a racist comedian, but some may question the title of one of the sketches which appears on this album. I appologize if any offence is taken.
The Rochdale Cowboy
Mike Harding is a comedian from the North of England, prevalent in the 70s/early 80s, with TV shows and audio albums, very much the Peter Kay of his day. He has a mix of cheeky humour/stand-up routines/songs and a love of folk music, and also wrote the theme song to Danger Mouse. This is ripped from an audio cassette (remember those?), as such the album is split into sides, not individual routines or songs, with 4 files per album, and 48kbps audio rate.
