Cartoonist. He was a German-born artist, cartoonist, humorist, caricaturist, musician, broadcaster and raconteur. A prolific illustrator most of his work was based on musical themes. His most famous recorded item is probably his "barrel" monologue, one of his many spoof letters, this one purporting to be from a builder excusing himself from work. His "Festival of Music" include fine performances on the vacuum cleaner and Vespa, and the exceptional 'Concerto for Double Bass Tuba and Piccolo'.
