Does anyone know who wrote the comedy song 'How many pips are there in a pomegranate?" ? Tommy Handley recorded it in 1929:

That links to a different song; this should work;

Pomegranate

I have no info about the composer, but some info about the record is here - scroll down to number 208 in the left hand column:

Piccadilly Info

There's a contact for the webmaster; maybe he'll be able to help you further.

Google images actually has a picture of the other side of the disc (Po-Kee-O-Kee, Oh! by Flynn, Butler), but sadly not the side you want.

I'd suggest sending a message on youtube to BritishVintageComedy and ask them for the credit.

Good spot by MCP. Randolph Sutton also did Po-Kee O-Kee-Oh! and the record label gives the composers' initials: H Flynn R Butler. Not sure that helps much, though!

Most likely culprit is Leslie Sarony, who wrote dozens of silly songs. I have had a quick look at his oeuvre, but can't see it there. He wrote so many songs, though, so it's not a definitive search.
