Having lived through the 1930’s and 40’s I am very familiar with all the music and entertainment that was on the BBC and on the old 78rpm records at that time. I spent my later childhood years enduring all the bombing raids that took place on Portsmouth and found some comfort in listening to the radio. I pursued a career with the Ministry of Defence and was finally posted to Bath where I retired. Wanting something positive to do in my retirement I joined Bath Hospital Radio and was with them for 19 years, much of which was as Programme Director. I look forward to producing many programmes for the 1940’s UK Radio Station..Contact : Len

Having been a great fan of all jazz era music since my teens, I had a strong desire to present ‘my kind of music’ on-air, and from 1992 to 1995 hosted “Gee Dad! It’s A Wurlitzer”, a weekly hour of theatre pipe organ on KPCC-FM, Pasadena, California. On moving to Spain, I pitched a local British station with both a 1925-1965 swing era show and a theatre organ programme and was on-air for some 3 years. I now concentrate on my Hot Pipes podcasts and broadcasts, bringing a new audience to this great and very varied musical art-form, which is not just about a ballroom in Blackpool!

From one of the UK’s premier jazz venues…
Tony. Just a note to say what a splendid evening with yourself and The TuxedoJazz Orchestra . You always give us a very professional show - fine musicians with
a great deal of humour . I will certainly book the show again .If only there were more bands of this caliber round.
“The TUXEDO JAZZ ORCHESTRA was launched at our 42nd Fishguard International Music Festival in July 2012 with waves of precision rhythm, crisp solos and punchy
brass playing a most satisfying blend of driving swing and expressive blues.
Supported by silky voices and delivered with humour, historical context and
panache, this concert was the foot-tapping highlight of Festival 42 and thoroughly
enjoyed by all.”
Chairman of the Fishguard International Music Festival
