There are several tracks playing on All Brass Radio that have the word "Special" in the title. What does that mean?
On many brass band CDs, there are tunes in three to six movements (and more!). They are formed as separate tracks on the CDs. All Brass Radio has combined them into one track and placed them into the playlist.
Special means a multi-movement track is playing, which if you purchased the CD yourself, it would not show up as a single track.

Buying or have a stand-alone internet radio? You may need to find All Brass Radio. In addition to Loveland, CO you might look for listings in Newburgh, IN. The station has changed its address within the last year.
I will play tracks from the CD on the station unless it is just awful (after about 90 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.
