There is a great prize on offer from 4BR—just in time before the Easter Sales start... if you can answer our special New Year’s Eve quiz question.

10 CDs

We have dipped into our Christmas stocking and come up with an eclectic selection box of 10 CDs — from Maynard Ferguson on ‘Chameleon’ to Foden’s with ’King Arthur’—as well as plenty of odd musical stops in between for you to enjoy.

We have even popped in one that has Christmas music on it for 2013...

There are CDs from Brett Baker, Enfield Citadel, GUS and Tredegar as well as highlights from the 2012 Nationals and Song of Exultation.
