    Hello Everyone


    Just 14 days to Christmas Day.... and still so much to do.... A wonderful programme of seasonal music for you this week. I understand the show now has some listeners in Japan so I have included a rare performance from a Japanese brass band with one of the UKs all time great cornet players.

    It was sad to read this week in the UK band press that Maisie Ringham Wiggins, a pioneer and first lady of the trombone passed away a few days ago aged 92. For those not familiar with her musical career please have a look at this link:



    Death of Maisie Ringham Wiggins and listen to her https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EhQI4mFFDqA taken from an old 78 rpm record in 1955.

    Here is the link to this week’s show and the playlist.
