The Famous "Character of the Turf" seen at most prominant racecourses in the 1930 here is recorded by Regal Zonophone - his real name was "Peter Carl Mackey" and he may have relatives in Somerset

I remember seeing Prince Monolulu on Derby day in the fifties. He used to sell tips, the name of the horse written on a folded piece of paper...of course each piece of paper had a different horse's name on it...if you landed up with a winner you would go back and buy another tip...great character.

Brilliant! The GREAT showman Ras Prince Monolulu. Just for accuracy, in the UK, he was seen at the racecourses from the 1920s to the 1960s. Also (briefly) as himself in several films. Also on pre-war BBC television. His real name was Peter Carl McKay and he died at the age of 84 in London in 1965.

This is Excellent :) , My Uncle who in hes 80`s now was telling me about Prince Monolulu, just resently and telling me he use to go up the East End of London, and tell folks about Horse Racing Tips and was a general Character in person. And he also told my Uncle was going to have a serious Accident and become a foreman at work. Which funny enough came true. And my uncle had very high praise for him to. I`m 29 now, a great shame Prince Monolulu is not alive today, would be lovely to met him. :)

I first came across him as a student in the late 70's when I read The Long Weekend by Alan Hodge and Robert Graves, a social history of Britain between the wars and a wonderful book.

Has no one ever written a radio or stage play about Prince Monolulu? It's about time someone did. I can imagine Sir Lenny Henry taking the title role. This record is almost Shakespearian. Brilliant.
