The former Sellers Engineering Band tuba player broadcasts on Cape Town's classical music radio station, Fine Music Radio (www.fmr.co.za) and has been connecting with a fledgling brass band community over the last 10 years with his occasional brass band spotlights.

The 1 hour long programme is dedicated to all things brass banding at 6.30pm (BST).
