The city of Krakow, Poland has a tradition that goes back hundreds of years: an hourly bugle call from a church tower in the famous city square. As the city prepared for the return of tourists, it realized it was short a few trumpeters to cover the 24-hour shifts.  The requirements: ability to play the trumpet, physically fit enough to climb the nearly 300 stairs to the church tower, and someone who is not afraid of heights. Well, it took six months of interviews and auditions but they finally found two trumpeters to add to the team.
