It's not a tuba

Enjoyable NPR piece here on the sousaphone, featuring Julius McKee of the Dirty Dozen. A good listen, if you need to brush up on the difference between a sousaphone and a tuba, and why one is ideal for second lines.

Also interesting: The piece is apparently part of a series on "the lower frequencies" in music. Hunh.
