Arthur Lloyd's 'One More Polka'

 

Arthur Lloyd's 'One More Polka'Hello and welcome to October's 2002's Special Feature.

This month the feature is on Arthur Lloyd's popular song 'One More Polka.'

'Although Arthur Lloyd will ever be remembered as a comedian of the highest order, it should not be forgotten that he was more - he was a clever and versatile author of pantomime, sketches, trios, duets, and other songs.

Upwards of 1,000 of the latter did he write, and it would therefor be impossible to enumerate a tithe of them, but a few of the most popular, some of which have become veritable bywords, must be recorded:-

"Not For Joe," perhaps heads the list; but “Take it Bob,” “The Postman,” “I fancy I can see her now,” “I vowed I never would leave her,” “One more polka,” “It’s the sort of thing we read about,” “Immensikoff,” “At it again,” were all the talk of the town in the days gone by.' - Extract from The ERA A.L. Reminiscences - 23rd July 1904.

You can hear One More Polka Played by Ian McFarlane, Courtesy Tom O'Connor, here.

This Feature was first created in October 2002 but was updated in March 2015 when the seperate pages were combined into this one. The page was updated again in 2017.
