    To all Mouthpiece Members,

    I have contacted the BBC regarding their programme 'TEST THE NATION'. They are extremely interested in receiving applications from members to make up a team of 50 musicians. (They currently have 15).

    We have got to act very quickly with this to make sure we get our members on the show. So it will be a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED selection.

    If you are interested in taking part then please send me an e-mail (not a private message) and I will send you the relevant application form.

    The show is being broadcast live on the evening of Sunday, May 4th
    The studio is based in Wembley, London.
    Groups are being called for 15:30 – 16:00 hours for registration, briefings and supper.

    They offer to cover all travel expenses (and accommodation for the Sunday night if applicable - remember Monday 5th is a Bank Holiday).

    So if you wish to represent the Brass Band Movement via send me an e-mail:

    Maybe they would if you and Singapore Northern Lass could share a taxi!

    Two Points..I wouldn't mind sharing a taxi with the young lady from Singapore, but have you seen the water taxi's in Thailand. They'd never let us up the Thames.. and secondly you get very wet..but in S.E.Asia it's hot so not a problem...unlike London

    I can't make it either - our second baby is due a few weeks later - a bit too close (or should that be too far!!!???) for comfort.

    Best of luck anyway - I'll be watching.

    This ties in very nicely with my discussion regarding musicians and high school achievers. The results will be very interesting!!

    Musicians will win hands down - but only with your help.

    Do you want an application form?
