A tribute to Eric Barker

Narrated, with personal reminiscences, by Bob Monkhouse.

In order to hear it, young British jazz musicians worked their passage to New York, playing in the dance bands on the great liners. On the Queen Mary, band members were booked by band leader Geraido. Thus Geraido's Navy was born.
