Helme

 

Sunday Bandstand:

Broadcast on Phoenix FM 96.7 community radio in the Halifax area of West Yorkshire. This programme is also available via www.phoenixfm.co.uk Every Sunday afternoon from 2pm to 3pm

Produced and presented by Chris Helme or further information please see: www.chrishelme-brighouse.org.uk

I am always pleased to receive requests—you might want to hear a piece from your own early days in banding, recordings that have long since joined the record deletions list and difficult to find.

Support us for less than a cup of coffee...

4BR wants to ensure that the brass band movement remains vibrant and relevant. We also want to be able to question, challenge and critically examine those who run and play in it, producing high quality journalism that informs as well as entertains our readers.

So if like us you value a strong, independent perspective on the brass band world - then why not consider becoming a supporter and help make our future and that of a burgeoning brass band movement more secure.

So one less cappuccino then?
