Sunday Bandstand weekly brass band programme 19 November 2017


Hello Brass Banders - Welcome to another two hours of just some of the best brass band music, bands and soloists. It's another diverse choice of music and I am sure there will be something you will all enjoy.

Don't forget if you have request or a question about the world of brass bands or if your band has produced a new CD or even a not so new one. I would be very pleased to play some of the tracks, promote the CD and your band's website. You can contact me through my email: you can also check out my website

The Burra Cheer-Up Ladies Band from South Australia - When the men went to the war, the ranks of Burra's Coronation brass marching band were left empty - the trumpets, drums and trombones were silent.
The Coronation Band, the local brass band, was left with insufficient players when the call to arms came. The lack of the band was noticed particularly when welcoming home soldiers at the station, so the Cheer-Up Society decided to form the Burra Cheer-Up Ladies' Band. Their initial aim was to learn at least two tunes to play at the railway station.
