Brass Band enthusiasts will be well acquainted with the BBC Radio 2 programme “Listen to the Band” with Frank Renton. The members of the Birmingham Citadel Band were delighted to learn that the band was featured on the programme for the second time in recent months as Frank Renton played tracks from the BCB CD “Seasons in Splendour”.
On a programme that featured music which looked back over 2013 the band was delighted that Frank Renton made mention of our 120th anniversary. Following this he chose to use the Bill Himes work “Three Kings Swing” which is a contemporary arrangement of the melody “The March of Magi”. For BCB to be mentioned in these circles was, once again, most humbling.
