Sunday Bandstand 31 May 2020 - 'A Space Odyssey'...

Following on from our themed programme last week this week we have a programme of music that reflects space, the stars, planets, the galaxies, time, flight and space in the movies..

There are pieces of music which many listeners will have played with their own bands or possibly heard some of them at a band concert. We have bands from a number of different countries and some fine soloists on the show.

In two weeks time we will be producing a themed show that represents the sea, rivers and even a canal. If you have any suggestions of music that will fit the theme please contact us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Enjoy the show
