Welcome to the 2nd of the 3-part program featuring Baby Boomer professional musician – Glyn Mason

In part 1 we learned that Glyn was born in the UK, migrated with his family to Australia post WWII, but the family eventually ended up making New Zealand their home in preference to Australia.

In this of the program we learn that although he had a good education, the world of the typical professions held no interest for him. We learn how his High School experiences led to his joining a band and how he left school in the mid 1960’s when the “popular music” explosion was happening world-wide.

With New Zealand not being insulated from these new music phenomena, he decided he needed to follow his dream to be a musician and, he had the talent to support that dream.

In unravelling his life we are educated and entertained with his stories of how his personal music journey was developing in an explosion of change.  Glyn arrives in Australia with NZ group – Larry’s Rebels. This starts an amazing career with him playing with some of the best including, Chain, Ariel and Copperwine to name but a few.
