THE MUSIC PODCAST: 46 (EXCERPT)

"Hello I’m Frank Renton introducing this week's music podcast.

After the success of our imaginary concert from Black Dyke in the last Music Podcast, we've decided to do another one, this time from the undoubted masters of brass band entertainment and the most famous colliery band in the world, Grimethorpe.

Featuring 7 conductors (including yours truly), some of the finest soloists any band could have, and of course the film Brassed Off.

Plus in any concert by Grimethorpe, imaginary or otherwise, there has to be a place for the music of Elgar Howarth, or W Hogarth Lear, the neat anagram of his real name that was his pen name. Garry as we all know him, simply changed the way that bands thought about themselves and we the listeners perceived it all.

There’s a story behind every piece of music, so take your seat for our latest Music Podcast and our virtual concert by the Grimethorpe Colliery Band."
