Max Miller & Cyril Ornadel Orchestra & Chorus - Let's have a ride on your bicycle (November 1953) (Philips P.B. 199 P26083H mtx AA 26083 2H) (78rpm)

Thomas Henry Sargent (21 November 1894 – 7 May 1963), best known by his stage name Max Miller and also known as "The Cheeky Chappie", was an English comedian who was widely regarded as the greatest stand-up comedian of his generation.

Max Miller, Britain’s top comedian in the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s was born in Brighton, England. He excelled as a stand-up comic playing in large variety theatres where his skill was such that he could hold an audience in the ‘palm of his hand’. He also made films, wrote and sang his own songs.
Max was renown for telling risqué jokes. He used innuendo and when on stage would woo his audience particularly the ladies. Much of his material was too blue for broadcasting.
The song, Let’s Have A Ride on Your Bicycle was banned by the BBC until it became too popular and public opinion forced the Corporation to lift the ban.
