Radio: All Brass Radio

More great music from across the Atlantic with the fantastic Dr Jim Fox.

  More great music from Dr Jim Fox across in the USA

It was another spectacular month on the All Brass Radio in July.

Each month, for over a decade, All Brass Radio has encouraged its visitors to vote on their favourite tracks, and in July the playlist was reduced to around 200 tracks to reflect the growing quality of the music that is being featured.

The changes have started to be shown in July, but we are sure there are going to be plenty of moves up and down the playlist in August and beyond!

This month only one track made the top 20 that had not made the top 20 before. That was the Woolston Brass Band form New Zealand, playing the wonderful march 'Crown Imperial'.

New apparel store

All Brass Radio has opened up a new apparel store selling polo shirts, T-shirts, sweatshirts and jackets with both the All Brass Radio logo and a fun new logo that simply says, 'Be Calm and let it Blow' with some fun icons to go with it.

Check it out at: http:/­/­www.allbrassradio.com/

If you'd like to have something fun for your wardrobe and donate a few dollars to the general donation fun of the All Brass Band radio station then take a look at the store and purchase something for you or someone else you love. In that way more brass bands can be heard on air!!
