Justing latching on to the Classic FM argument in The Bandsman. There are a couple of readers demanding to know why there are so few brass band recordings played on Classic FM. The controller of Classic FM argued that they do play bands but as the movement uses so many arrangements they feel that this shouldn't be included in their programming. So, do you feel this is justified? Have we got to move in a different direction to be accepted once again by the masses or are Classic FM wrong, why shouldn't they play bands playing arrangements? We were not long ago featured on prime time television and we had the Festival of Brass on Radio 3, lap of honour concert after the Open, an hour long Listen to the Band etc. Merry Christmas by the way!
