    Both Tuba and Euohonium on Quantum Leap

    The show Quantum Leap had a Christmas episode titled "A Little Miracle". It is a bit of a remake of Dicken's "A Christmas Carol". It features a small Salvation Army unit, complete with band. In the scenes with the band, we see Tuba, Euphonium, Cornet, and Bass Drum. It aired Dec. 24, 1962, if you want to look into it. The actors clearly had fun with performing in this episode.

    The episode actually first aired on Dec. 21, 1990. Dec. 24, 1962 is the "date" when the story supposedly took place.

    Edit to add: For those who might want to look this ep up, the old Quantum Leap series streams on Prime Video, VUDU, and Apple TV, but it's $1.99 per episode. It also streams on Peacock, with subscription.

    I was able to find the episode on the Roku channel. Haven't watched the series much, but this was a nice diversion. Gotta say, I don't recall seeing a female Salvation Army officer with such striking red lipstick! But that's Hollywood/etc. I lost count of the number of times I've seen depictions of military personnel with looooong hair!

    I stand corrected regarding the episode air date (smile). It is easy to get confused on a show that deals with time travel (tease). I was able to get the show using a free streaming service that has a deal with our cable provider. So it should be pretty easy to find if anyone is interested.

    Yes, I saw a few historical errors, and the lipstick was kind of glaring. Knowing the Salvation Army, I saw a few other nit picky details that would not be correct. But interesting that they were able to make it explicitly about the organization and work. All in all, just a feel good kind of episode and fun to see our favorite instruments displayed.
