Radio: All Brass Radio

Cory head the worldwide listening stakes on All Brass Radio

AllBrass RADIO
  All Brass Radio is reaching out to every more people around the banding world.

The worldwide popularity of All Brass Radio has certainly been shown in October with a record number of voters taking the opportunity to make their opinion felt on 65 brand new tracks.

And the top spot is now held by the world's number 1 ranked band, as Cory' s 'Day of the Dragon Special' leads the way.

Cory special

Presenter Jim Fox told 4BR: "Specials are new to All Brass Radio. In Cory's case the 'Special' came from the CD 'Day of the Dragon' recorded back in 2004.

An introduction is recorded and then the tracks are spliced into one track. The tracks spliced movements from the 'Day of the Dragon' including 'Overture', 'Lullaby', 'Welsh Clog Dance', 'Ballad' and 'Triumph'."

Abbots rising

Another 'Special' also made the Top 20 from the International Staff Band. In all, there are 10 specials in the playlist.

Other interesting notes include the continued popularity of the dynamic 'Fire in the Blood' by the ISB and the rise of Kirsty Abbots up the list. A little known tune from an Australian TV show, 'The Flying Doctors' also keeps moving up the list.

Out of about 570 tracks, only two are not brass bands — both trombone choirs. Spiritual to the Bone makes the list once again with their rendition of 'Linus and Lucy'.

All Brass Radio is a free All Brass Band Radio Station that plays tracks every day of the year, commercial-free, thanks to the generosity of the donors.
