Sunday Bandstand 24 May 2020 - 'A Russian Festival'...

This week Sunday Bandstand is playing a themed programme of music, it is to be the first of many in the future. This first programme is titled 'A Russian Festival'. Some of the music you will be familiar with, whilst a number of the tracks may be new to you. It is a mixed programme of music which I am sure you are going to enjoy. The programme features bands from six different countries.

If you would like to suggest a few theme please let us know and we will look at it and see if such a programme is possible for a two hour programme and would hold the interest of a large audience of listeners.

Please note that the theme for next week is titled 'A Space Odyssey'.

Enjoy
