    And today is the aniversary of the death of Adolphe Sax,who died in 1894. (Possibly after hearing a junior windband playing some of his inventions!)

    I think it expired around the time Dave Payn moved to Arran, but we used to have an "on this day" thread somewhere with whole lists of musical anniversaries and birthdays.

    I guess it may have become less interesting after the first 12 months though .......
