In this film, Len Tyler tells us how, as a musician in the Army, he fell in love with the tuba, having flirted with the trombone, how he kept quiet at Pirbright, how the ‘Golden Eight’ became the ‘Golden Nine’ and of the time he smuggled a sousaphone.

Len provides a fab interview all of energy and entertainment. One can only imagine what it was like to play with so many other musicians. You can see him again in the Chase Bridge film where he had the pupils in the palm of his hand.
