"As we head deeper into December, here's news of my first festive music podcast on Frank Renton on Brass.

Not all music at this time of year is Hark the Herald and O Come all you Faithful, so join me for music reflecting both the season and the calendar, played by the ever brilliant Philip Jones Brass Ensemble, the youthful talent of David Childs, the swing of the North Carolina Brass Band and the intricate ensemble playing of the brilliant Finer Arts Brass Ensemble, plus of course the odd carol.

So it’s a time for reflection with some wonderful brass music, in my latest Music Podcast on Frank Renton on Brass."
