Great Brass Band Overtures to enjoy!

During recording the show I was informed of the sad loss of Meg Thomas. A member of the Marsh Gibbon Silver band when I was the Musical Director a few years ago, who passed away recently. Meg had a favourite Brass Band piece Finlandia, so as a tribute to Meg I put it into this weeks broadcast in memory of Meg.
Her husband Adrian has launched a fundraising page to the Maggies Centre who looked after Meg.
Here is the link if you would like to donate.
Thank you R.I.P Meg.x
