Radio: Listen to the Band

More music from Frank at the BBC as we approach Chrsitmas

Frank Renton
  There is more music to enjoy from Frank Renton

Listen to the Band: 5th December

With stopovers to enjoy a Slavonic dance, a Greek dance, a cream tea in Cornwall and a Mexican Hat Dance, Frank Renton joins some great bands and players enjoying the rhythms and cultures of a mystery musical tour.

Listen to the Band: 12th December

In his look back over the year's CDs, Frank Renton spotlights the new National Champion Brighouse & Rastrick playing music a million miles away from the competition arena.

Cory's 'Storyteller' CD gets the top spot with some incredible playing, Black Dyke celebrated the ever popular music of Paul Lovatt-Cooper and we salute the final recording for the outgoing Principal Director of Music at The Royal Marines Lt. Col Nick Grace OBE.

We've also been looking high and low, far and wide and even 'Over the Horizon' for a 'CD of the Year', and it sets a very high bench mark in the world of soprano cornet players.
