Sunday Bandstand 21 June 2020 - 'A Night at the Movies'...

This week, take a break from all the doom and gloom we have been watching and hearing about this last week and join Chris Helme with his weekly two-hour Sunday Bandstand radio show. This show will take you on a journey through some of the best-loved pieces of film music that have been enjoyed and played by brass bands and appreciated by audiences for many years. The music includes a number of pieces you will only appreciate as being used in the movies both large and small once the music starts.

I am sure some of your favourite movie melodies will be amongst the 23 pieces featured on the show. Bands have been brought together from USA, Norway, Austria, Belgium, Italy, New Zealand, Switzerland and some great home grown bands from here in the UK. The show also includes some fine soloists and a wonderful female vocalist.

Well, if you have bought your ice-lolly, a can of pop and may be some pop-corn for later - then make yourself comfortable and let the show begin.
