Listen to the Band, 28 May 2004, BBC Radio 2 It was good to be reminded what a classy band Faireys are, even if this programme was recorded before the recent many player changes. The music was quite strong on nostalgia and featured a number of Gordon Langford arrangements/compositions. Major Peter Parkes conducted. Not withstanding the shortcomings of sound on Radio 2 Internet, to me the sound of the band was quality. You have the chance (for the week) of hearing them and with Phillip McCann (cornet) and Gareth Brindle (baritone) playing solos — not overlooking some nice-sounding soprano work (Kevin Crockford?). Unfortunately, the first few bars of the opening march and the ending of “The Yeomen of the Guard” are cut off the Internet broadcast. Call me old-fashioned, but this was a very satisfying LTTB.
