Sunday Bandstand with Chris Helme

Hosted by:


Hello Everyone.

My name is Chris Helme and I am based in Brighouse, West Yorkshire in the UK – have kindly agreed to play my weekly Sunday Bandstand programme. I’ve been in brass banding for over 50 years. Whilst I have now retired from playing I am still involved writing brass band nostalgia and both producing and presenting my weekly brass band programme. I’ve written for the Brass Review,, and now the British Bandsman here in the UK.

Sunday Bandstand is my 2 hour show which has some of the best sounds from the world of brass bands. You will hear performances from the present day bands as well as some fine vintage performances. There will be soloists from the present era and some from the past. The show has been running since 2007 and I am always pleased to receive requests, and questions about the world of brass bands. If your band has or is producing a new CD I am always willing and able to play and share your efforts with the listeners…  You can contact me by e-mail:… and I will be very pleased to hear from you.Well, Sunday Bandstand is the name of the show …. you can tune in via the internet and join me at
every Sunday from 2 – 4pm French time  …. it’s just to good to miss
Chris Helme
