Herbert Lodge was originally a double-bass player, who studied with Charles Winterbottom at the Royal Academy and then (around 1919) joined the Covent Garden Opera Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra and Royal Philharmonic. He later moved into conducting, progressing from amateur operatics to his own symphony orchestra (during WW1), then in 1929 succeeding Bainbridge Robinson as musical director of the Margate Municipal Orchestra. While there he produced numerous recordings as well as radio broadcasts.
