A recent comment on Boarshurst Silver Band show from Australia "It should be number one with the program and the quality of the playing by the Boarshurst Silver band...most enjoyable I'm very impressed...""

Norman CharlesAustralia

A well presented radio show and even if Brass is not your thing there's always something there to remind you !"


Superb Music and I can stream via the computer whilst I am working. Plus I can use mix-cloud to let my elderly mum listen to the feed over and over again. I also love the fact the initial broadcast is repeated several times over the following days and at different times of day which gives people a great chance of catching it at some point. What a fantastic way of sharing brass band music!"

Greta Brownridge

I thoroughly enjoy listening to Sounds of Brass every morning while I read the newspaper and work the crossword puzzles. Actually, anytime I'm at the computer, I have it playing in the background. Thank you. Linda Taylor, Eb Bass, Golden State British Brass Band, in California” Thank you"

Linda Taylor

I thoroughly enjoyed the Clifton and Lightcliffe Bands. John and Jane Clay work tirelessly to make the bands a success. Thank you"

Ray Brasswell

As a brass player and a big 'Brass Band' fan, I very much look forward to listening in to Sounds of Brass whenever I can. Chris, you and your team are doing a great job - thank you."

Mary Goodland

Excellent show by the way, much needed after the demise of Radio 2, listen to the band. I also play with Canterbury and Maidstone Salvation Army bands and your programme introducing the John Larsson CD was great and informative. I already had the CD."

This helps you generate a good fundamental tone that can be delivered consistently across the entire range of the instrument. No more struggling with a weak or “thin” tone even when exploring the limits of your instrument."
