Helme

 

Sunday Bandstand:

Broadcast on Phoenix FM 96.7 community radio in the Halifax area of West Yorkshire. This programme is also available via www.phoenixfm.co.uk Every Sunday afternoon from 2pm to 3pm

Produced and presented by Chris Helme or further information please see: www.chrishelme-brighouse.org.uk

It is also available via Podcast from the Radio Phoenix website.

I am always pleased to receive requests—you might want to hear a piece from your own early days in banding, recordings that have long since joined the record deletions list and difficult to find.
