    Ladies and Gents,

    For those of you who do not know, I have had a Brass Band internet radio station for almost 6 years. It is a 96K stereo internet station playing only brass bands. If you log in to you will find 24/7/365 Brass Bands, Salvation Army Bands, and every so often (once every few hours) a spectacular solo or great drum cadence, or even the brass of a drum corps playing something.

    What I have not played since the first time the station came on the air is small brass quartets/quintets or non-traditional (well, way off the beat non-traditional) tracks from bands.

    Now for this month's list. First I must thank my remaining sponsor, PDFmusic. Check them out at You can buy a piece in the morning and play it at your evening rehearsal. It comes in electronic format so if you need extra parts, no problem. You can simply print more.

    PDFbrass will also transpose any piece into a different key or for a different size group for only a little extra money. Like a brass band piece can be modified for a concert band, or a 10 piece band, or a Bassoon Quintet. Any instrument in any clef.

    [IMGLEFT][/IMGLEFT]The Top 20 again this month was donminated by Black Dyke. Surprisingly to me, many of the old favorites continue to appear in the top Top 20. The Planets and even a track from the first Black Dyke Essentials.

    Only one US band this month, and that is the small BrassBand of the Northwest. This is the second month in a row they have made the Top 20.

    The station is in dire need of several sponsors. During this recession, my long-time sponsors cut back. If you listen to the station a lot, there is a donate button that would help. $5 to $20 donations from several people would go along ways toward paying the costs!

    Listenership is at an ALL TIME high. But because of the recession, the sponsorship has pulled back. All economists suggest that if you can expand in a recession, you should. Contact for discounts and package deals on advertising.

    It was right in my signature. The old station had the other address so I do that sometimes. I apologize.

    I am the one going crazy.


    Edit: Maybe one of the mods could change the original post to be correct. - thanks Jim.
