    The Jon Webber and the singing dog and the BSO so far for me :)

    I actually thought of a sort of relay version of the original version, sort of a tag team version, but have never been with a band that c/would try it, bearing in mind I am essentially a Euph player.

    There is a topless man and his mouthpiece buzzing it.

    Sorry, couldn't play that on Euph, well I can, but it wouldn't be right.

    George Chisholm and Jimmy Edwards would be spinning if it was played on a valved instrument!

    A notably poor one.

    I thought the hey-nonny-nonny Beefeaters' 'Sackrobat' was a masterpiece!

    I like Sid's one where he keeps a dead pan face while the guy in full horse mask provides percussion with coconut halves. :D

    Hi Jack, it is on facebook and is raising money to buy the drugs Stephen Sykes needs in his fight against cancer. For every video of someone playing the acrobat, money is donated to the gofund account as the drugs are not available on the NHS. £90.000 is needed and last time I looked it was in the mid 70s. The goodwill to Jo (his Mum) and the family has been awe inspiring.

    Ah, thank you! But where does the money come from?

    Thank you, Mesmerist - 'cos I'm not on Facebook.

    With best regards,
    Jack
