He proved equally popular on radio in the 1930s, known by the catch phrase, "Can you hear me, Mother?", and appeared in a several films. Powell was the first comedian to recognize the potential of record sales, recording 85 comedy routines on 78 rpm discs between 1929 and 1942. His "Lost Policeman" routine sold a million copies. Powell was honored with an MBE in 1975. Paper remnants on verso, shows on right edge of front. Signature faint, but legible. Corners slightly worn. Fine condition.
