Sunday Bandstand 31 January 2021

This week we welcome two more community radio stations who are now playing Sunday Bandstand on their weekly schedules. Ribble FM which is based in Clitheroe in the North West of England and Cofton Hackett Radio which is based just south of Birmingham in the Midlands here in the UK. This now means we have a total of 14 licensed community radio stations playing the show each week. On top of that we have almost 200 individuals who are based all around the world receiving the Mixcloud link to the show.
If you have a request or question about the world of brass bands you can contact me by email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. On this week's show we also have a short musical tribute to the late James Scott.
