It has always been Willie Walker's ambition to form a combination consisting entirely of virtuosos, and this has been amply realised in the case of his Octet. Walker himself started to learn the clarinet when a little child of seven in Newcastle. After holding positions as musical director in a Newcastle cinema and restaurant he joined Debroy Somers and later Geraldo. He formed his own combination in 1936, since when it has been heard regularly on the air.
