October is All Brass Radio's Fund Raising month. This station operates subscription-free and commercial-free thanks to the donors. We are asking for more of you to consider becoming donors. The station has numerous ongoing costs such as website hosting, radio broadcasting hosting, purchasing of new CDs, royalties (that is a large expense), and ongoing programming projects.

In 2019, if the station gets enough donors, we would like to add new iOS and Android apps that will allow listening on your smartphone or tablet. They would also incorporate voting on tracks from the apps. We would also like to secure the station and take it to an https station. That will require programming help. Of course, we hire professional voices often for foreign language spots. We would like to add French and perhaps Spanish in 2019. It takes money to hire professional voices.

Dr. Jim Fox, the owner and founder, is very good with websites and does all the website programming saving that cost. Some very generous listeners donate their talents like Mica and Judy Calfee.

If you are not a current donor, please consider being one. For the price of an expensive cup of coffee or two each month you can make a big difference to All Brass Radio.

If you donate your band’s CD
I will play tracks from the CD on the station unless it is just awful (after about 80 donated CDs I have had only one couldn’t use) and I will put the cover image above with some notes attached. The notes you can write or I will write something after visiting your website and/or reading the CD cover information. If I get a few CDs, I will have them rotate. The cover image will have a link to your band’s website or to a CD seller’s site where listener’s can buy the CD. I love donations of CDs and try to give donors as much publicity as I can.

All Brass Band Radio is OFFICIALLY an iTunes Radio Station. Apple has made dramatic changes to iTunes 12.8 (the latest version). So how do you listen to the station? Easy. Go to the top menu and select RADIO. The under the FILE menu select OPEN STREAM and enter — thats it 😀

You can still do it the sort of old-fashioned way. Pick radio on the side, select the genre "eclectic" and not too far down the list is All Brass Radio.

Clacton-on-Sea Co-Operative Band
Former Championship Band to a Non-Competing Band

The Clacton-on-Sea Co-Operative Band is a traditional Brass Band celebrating 60 years of music making. Formed in 1948 the Band is a well established organization and over the years has earned the reputation of being a fine concert and contesting Band. Many prizes have been won in competitions including in 1977, the title of 2nd Section Champion Band of Great Britain.

From then on the band rapidly progressed to the Championship Section, where until 2003 the Band was firmly established – over twenty years at this level was a great achievement. After two successful years in the First Section 2004-2005 the Band was once again in the Championship Section nationally and maintaining a high standard of playing.

Several years back, the band decided to leave the competitive side of banding and is now a premiere concert brass band. The band enjoys venturing outside the local area. They have travelled extensively in Europe including trips to France, Belgium, Germany and Hungary and more frequently to Winschoten, Holland to perform with the Nieuw Leven Band.

Their music repertoire includes an extensive range of traditional brass band music, and many arrangements of Classical, jazz, pop, light, shows and films - a repertoire that will match most musical requirements. The majority of the concerts provide a mix of all types of music to suit all tastes and are very keen to receive requests.

The Band is proud to be sponsored by the East of England Co-Operative Society who support them in their various activities and have done so since 1978.

All Brass Radio would like to thank the band for donating their CD "The Sun has got its Hat On" which is filled with great tunes very well played.
Your band too can donate a CD, contact Jim Fox for details.

The Longridge Band

The Longridge Band are a championship section band based in the Ribble Valley, Lancashire in the North West of England. The band is thought to be one of the oldest brass bands in the country, with the first known public performance dating back to 1845. One of the bands greatest achievements is arguably winning the First Section National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain in 1996.

In more recent years the band has achieved great success in concerts and competitions under the direction of Mark Peacock. The band recently visited Ypres, Belgium to pay their respects to those who lost their lives in WW1. The band played in part of the Last Post service at the Menin Gate, as well as finding two Longridge bandsmen graves, who sadly lost their lives in battle.

Best Foot Forward is our latest CD, recorded in 2015. The title track is a march by Ernest Tomlinson MBE. Ernest was a well-known composer particularly noted for his light music compositions, who sadly passed away in 2015. He was also a supporter and patron of the Longridge Band and frequently visited the band to conduct his fine compositions.
