    Anyone else see Richard and Judy this evening.

    Their first item was about the initiative by Youth Music and Classic FM (see
    to get young people playing large brass instruments.

    David Childs was there, but couldn't play because of a recent hernia op.
    There was a Euph player called Amy/Aimee :!: :?: :!: :?: :!: :?: along with a tuba player and 4? trombonists.

    There was a cringe making moment, when Richard, in his eagerness to have a go, took hold of a cornet by the mouthpiece! Yes, he was left holding the mouthpiece as the rest crashed to the floor :?

    I hope I am not the only sad person here who watches R&J :oops:

    I watched it as well :oops: :oops: .
    I thought the Trombones could have played something more lively!

    I cringed as well when I heard that tell tale clang.

    I felt so embarrassed for Richard, what an idiot!

    It's crazy seeing your mates on telly.

    Just read that classic fm endangered page, makes some interesting points:


    What is a tuba then if it's not a normal instrument??!! :?

    Is this true??

    Also take a look at this!

    Not entirely sure as to the point of it, but mine has now got 3% ability and 3% enthusiasm!!!

    Cheers for posting the details about the endangered species thing, I might try for a grant when I go to music college.

    Seems Richard & Judy are the perfect celebrities for tMP event next year then. He has been seen dropping a cornet and she gets her baps out in public. Sounds like every pub I've ever been in after the area's.

    Can't believe i missed it!! I usually have it on while making the tea.
    Watched it earlier in the week where they had a bit on about toys and they had a cuddly Nemo. Richard couldn't remember the name of the film and judy said 'I know, its Saving Private Nemo'!!!!!!!

    They're not doing well...

    umm... how about tenor and alto, I might let them off with alto, but tenor clef is used all over the place!

    I think some horn and trumpet players might dispute that...

    Just because the contrabass sounds like a chainsaw, doesn't mean it's not a trombone! And there are at least 3 sizes of bass trombone I can think of!
