Sunday Bandstand 8 November

Sunday Bandstand 8 November

Hello Brass Banders -

This is a show highlighting just some of the 1960s pieces of brass band music that many of us were playing in those days. There are certainly many pieces that have stood the test of time, but inevitably many others have been confined to the darkest corners of bandroom music libraries never to be seen again.

Apologies for the show being very late, I have been ill since last Friday, nothing serious but it does mean that the 1970s show for this coming Sunday will be sent out in a later week when I hope to be fighting fit again. Thank you to those listeners who had emailed me asking where had I gone and was I OK....

Chris
