Publisher's Summary

The complete Series 1 and 2 of the BBC Radio sitcom about a cantankerous trombone player and his pianist best friend.

When 60-something musician pals Roy and George attend the funeral of an old bandmate, they realise that since they stopped performing, they've got stuck in a rut. Retirement's all well and good, but they seem to spend most of their time in front of the TV, or propping up the bar at the Hen & Pewter.

Believing that jazz players should keep swinging while they've still got rhythm, the duo decide it's time to recreate the good old days, and start a new band. But will their musical partnership survive the loss of Roy's trombone, the reappearance of an erstwhile friend and the return of an old flame? Plus, Roy and George have old scores to settle with a former bandleader, and George's 70th-birthday celebrations bring back bittersweet memories....

Written by Marcus Powell and John Byrne, this gentle, light-hearted comedy stars Ram John Holden and Don Warrington as Roy and Sam Kelly as George, with Yvonne Brewster as Vi, Caroline Lee Johnson as Bernadette and Marcus Powell as Victor.
