All Brass Band Radio is now OFFICIALLY an iTunes Radio Station. Go to iTunes, and under your drop down menu towards the upper left corner of iTunes (it usually starts on "Music") select "Internet Radio". If "Internet Radio" is not an option select "More" and then "Internet Radio" will be one of the options. Select "Internet Radio". You will have to select from all the genres offered. Select "Eclectic". Since the selection of stations are in alphabetical order All Brass Band Radio is not too far down the list. Select it and you can hear it in 192 Kbps stereo (the same as on this page).

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.

has been the voice of ALL BRASS RADIO for a long time. He has helped the station immensely and at reasonable rate since the radio station became independent and fully on the air!

German Voice Promos provided by Heike Bachmann Voice Overs. She has also provided voice material at a very reasonable rate to All Brass Band Radio.

Thanks also to Mica and Judy Calfee who generously donated their services to provide spots and special introductions. Mica noticed I had an outstanding European voice in Alan Bainbridge, and one of the best in providing German voices in Heike Bachman, but no true American voices. Judy happily provided a female American voice to the mix. They both gave of their time and services, free of charge as a donation of American voices to add to the mix. My thanks go out to Mica and Judy for their generosity.

Salute to the Military Brass Bands

The United States Army Brass Band

"United States Army Bands provide music throughout the spectrum of military operations to instill in our soldiers the will to fight and win, foster the support of our citizens, and promote our national interests at home and abroad."

The British Army Brass Band

"Music is utilised in the British Armed Forces as a source of influence. It contributes to the moral component of fighting power by supporting the ethos, tradition and identity of our personnel.
The universality of music is a powerful tool available to Commanders as a source of communication and positive influence."

The Swiss Army Brass Band


"The Swiss Armed Forces operates on land, in the air, and in international waters. Under the country's militia system, professional soldiers constitute about 5 percent of the military. The musician are ambassadors for the Armed Forces"

The New Zealand Army Brass Band

"Formed in 1964 as a traditional brass band to perform at state and ceremonial occasions the New Zealand Army Band has evolved into a unique entertainment unit performing in a wide variety of settings. The band has developed as the primary link between New Zealand’s Army and the civilian population, as well as becoming a major recruiting tool for the New Zealand Defence Force."

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.
I will be forever grateful to Midland CD in the UK. In the early days of the station, we exchanged CDs for advertising space. They encouraged me to take my station from a hobby station to a professional station. They station was much smaller then, and I do not believe Midland CD got a great increase in sales. I think they hoped for more. If they advertised today, with the station being at least 10 times larger, they probably would get expanded. But through all and all, they stuck to the agreement. Again, I will be forever grateful for the "push" they gave to the station.

Thanks to Harald Bartelds who sent the station 19 of his personal CDs from The Netherlands. It was a kind gift, and just the postage alone was expensive. Many new tracks were added to the playlist from the CDs he sent.

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.
