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

In this week’s programme we’re including classic Black Dyke in one of its many purple phases, captured on a series of recordings made by the Chandos Label.

Not that I really remember the last time I was in one, but in some restaurants these days you can often experience chips ‘three ways’, no, I’m not sure either, but in how many ways can we experience a Brass quartet? 

Well I've got 3 of them, plus a bit of Brass Band music history, played by one of my favourite bands, the Kirkintilloch Band, a great baritone solo by Katrina Marzella and film music by Carl Davis, that he insisted could only be arranged for brass by Ray Farr and quite brilliant it is too."

We hope you'll enjoy the free excerpt of The Music Podcast that's below and then do please subscribe and join us on Frank Renton on Brass for more details, the full playlist and of course the whole programme as well as all our many other podcasts - it's less than £1 a week!
