Percentage of Goal reached to date.

I promise to take down the "donor promos" as soon as the goal is met.

I have many needs for the station coming up soon! Please, if you listen, consider giving. It makes such a difference!

It is November Again!

So what you may be asking? Every November I run a funding campaign. As many of you know, I nearly died 15 years ago in a severe car accident and spent 10 days in the hospital and they only gave me a small chance of living the first night.

I have lived on disability for many years now. I make very little in the way of actual money. I like keeping this station commercial-free — but that takes sponsors. When I started the station 15 years ago, it cost $10 dollars a month and I had only 25 tracks!

Today, with royalties, buying the newest CDs, paying for custom programming, and doing everything I can to keep the 575 tracks fresh, there are many, many high costs. I have dozens of great sponsors currently.

But every year, a few sponsors drop off and expenses always grow. Royalties have doubled is just one example. This station reaches several thousand listeners a day and at least 35,000 a week.

It is a great station due only to the sponsors. Please consider giving $5 to $50 a month to keep the station on "the air" and commercial-free! Donation buttons to the left! I need 10 to 15 new donors this month.

Several new CDs were added this month. Many released within the last month or two. If you like hearing both the latest CDs and the best of days gone by, please consider being a donor!

The worldwide popularity of All Brass Radio has certainly been shown in October with a record number of voters taking the opportunity to make their opinion felt on 65 brand new tracks via the Top 20 list.

And the top spot is now held by the world's number 1 ranked band, as Cory' s 'Day of the Dragon Special' leads the way.

Cory special
Presenter Jim Fox told 4BR: "Specials are new to All Brass Radio. In Cory's case the 'Special' came from the CD 'Day of the Dragon' recorded back in 2004.

An introduction is recorded and then the tracks are spliced into one track. The tracks spliced movements from the 'Day of the Dragon' including 'Overture', 'Lullaby', 'Welsh Clog Dance', 'Ballad' and 'Triumph'."

Abbots rising
Another 'Special' also made the Top 20 from the International Staff Band. In all, there are 10 specials in the playlist.

Other interesting notes include the continued popularity of the dynamic 'Fire in the Blood' by the ISB and the rise of Kirsty Abbots up the list. A little known tune from an Australian TV show, 'The Flying Doctors' also keeps moving up the list.

Out of about 570 tracks, only two are not brass bands — both trombone choirs. Spiritual to the Bone makes the list once again with their rendition of 'Linus and Lucy'.

All Brass Radio is a free All Brass Band Radio Station that plays tracks every day of the year, commercial-free, thanks to the generosity of the donors.

SPECIALS!

There are now several "specials" programmed on the station. These are pieces that come in 3 to 6 movements and can be as long as 20 minutes. Many bands record such specials and put them in separate tracks. All Brass Radio has combined them into a single track for our listener's enjoyment. Feedback, as always, is welcome.

All Brass Band Radio is OFFICIALLY an iTunes Radio Station. Apple has made dramatic changes to iTunes 12.7 (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
http://cloudrad.io/allbrassradio/listen.pls — 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.

Comprised of professional musicians, professors, educators, and community members, the band is committed to bringing the arts to the community through entertainment, educational collaborations, and fundraising efforts for local schools and charities.

Recent initiatives to promote brass banding include the inception of the Mid-Atlantic Brass Band Festival in 2012, an annual event including masterclasses, clinics, solo competitions, and band performances that culminated in 2016 with hosting the #1 brass band in the world, the Cory Band from Wales, UK, as well as the collaborative effort with Rowan Prep to form the Rowan Prep Atlantic Youth Brass Band, an introductory brass band experience for area middle and high school musicians.

Atlantic Brass Band graciously donated this CD. Your band can do the same. Contact Jim Fox for more information.

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.
headphones Feel free to call me. Have suggestions? Want to talk about Brass Bands? Ideas for improving the station? You can call or Skype (my Skype name is JollyPlayer). Unfortunately, I only speak English.
