Written by Don Ray and Hugh Prince, in February 2003 veteran broadcaster Desmond Carrington said this recording by Harry Roy & His Band came out in 1939 to a million stifled giggles. "She Had To Go And Lose It At The Astor" begins with a spoken introduction, and then a hunt for what is a sable cape, but of course the male voice chorus is full of double entendre.
As Carrington pointed out, the song was initially banned by the BBC. Always a fruitless exercise, because if nothing else, this generates curiosity.
