    Hello Brass Banders

    Welcome to this week’s show. You will see from the playlist below we have a diverse choice of music from bands and soloists from around the banding world for your enjoyment.

    Don’t forget if you have a question or a request or your band has brought a new CD I would be very pleased to play a couple of tracks from it and help to promote both the CD and your band’s website. Please contact me by e-mail

    Arthur Gullidge, son of a Broken Hill (New South Wales, Australia) miner, was a Christian as a young boy. He was an accomplished conductor and composer of band music. He felt that he should play a part in Australia’s defence deciding that a non-combatant role, for a Christian, would be more appropriate

    He and 25 other Salvationists from a number of citadels, ranging from Sydney to Hobart, all marched into the Royal Park Military Depot in Melbourne enlisting as a group. Age 32, as the band leader and commissioned by the Army to write a collection of band music for use on ceremonial occasions that would remain in use by the military, right on into the present.

    The 2/22nd military band led by him was the Bandmaster at Brunswick and to this day is recognised internationally for his brilliance as composer and musician. The majority of the bandsmen perished when, as prisoners of war being transported to Japan, the ship (Montevideo Maru) they were on was torpedoed by the US, who didn’t realise that it contained prisoners of war.

    This terrible fate in World War 2 was only revealed after the war.

    Our opening march is Broken Hill written by the late Arthur Gullidge.
