Sunday Bandstand weekly brass band programme 12 July 2020


Hello Brass Banders and welcome to another two hour show of brass band music from around the world. Lots of great music from eight countries and some fabulous soloists.

Here is a little bit of back ground to how the show started and an indication of how far it reaches across the world:

I was invited in 2007 to produce and present the programme by Phoenix FM community radio station in Halifax. The station decided that Sunday Bandstand would be a good name for it. Initially this was a one-hour show, it soon developed however into two hours. It was not long before I was contacted by several other community radio stations who all wanted to play my show on their station schedule. From those stations I was then contacted by one in Australia, another in New Zealand and one in Italy, all three now play my weekly programme.

I also send the link out to almost 200 people who all round the world from as far apart as Thailand across to California and are all brass band enthusiasts. That list of individual listeners is growing. If you would like the show link sending contact me on The show is always open for requests and questions you might have about the world of brass bands

Enjoy the show
