Without a loud speaker, Tommy Handley's set is in a state of low tension. That gay spark had been on the anode bend and at last found himself short-circuited in a dry cell.
The following morning he was charged with unlicensed interference at high frequency with the laws of gravity, or, in the alternative (5GB), with being a dull emitter and bobbing the cat's whiskers.
The detector, giving evidence, said that the accused, after being run to earth, oscillated and blasted, but offered no resistance.
Tommy, after hearing a long talk, promised in a fit of remorse that he would revise his programme and turn over a now leaf at a ridiculous rate of resolutions per hour perhaps.
'The native hue of resolution
Is sickled o'er with the pale'

* This probably means 'Ringing in Anno domini 1929'
