Anne-Marie Minhall

Weekdays, 1-5pm

Anne Marie Minhall

From blacksmiths wanting to hear Verdi’s Anvil Chorus, to mothers-to-be in labour asking for anything to calm their nerves, you’ll be astonished to discover the people we’ve featured on Classic FM Requests over the years. This two-hour show is just one of the many treats we have to offer every weekday afternoon.

From 1pm every weekday, we turn Classic FM over to you. The callers can range from kids to pensioners, from long-term listeners to classical music newbies. And we never failed to be surprised by the surge of phone calls, emails and texts requesting all manner of music to accompany the lunchtime chores.  

Anne-Marie Minhall is at the helm for Classic FM Requests – and, when the dedications are all concluded at 3, she remains your friendly companion through the afternoon.  

Future highlights


From now until Christmas, Anne-Marie will be bringing you a Mistletoe Moment – a romantic, festive tune to enjoy. And today’s Hall of Fame 3 at 3 is a triple bill of composers who, when not writing music, loved watching or playing sport. 


Today there'll be a chance to hear more from our Artist of the Week, the conductor and composer Carl Davis. 


This afternoon’s Hall of Fame 3 at 3 shines the spotlight on a trio of chaps with hobbies they were passionate about. There was Mozart with his billiards, Dvorak and train-spotting, and not forgetting Prokofiev’s love of chess. 


On this day in 1892, Tchaikovsky’s evergreen ballet The Nutcracker had its first public outing with a premiere in St. Petersburg – so this afternoon, we’ll enjoy a taste of this Russian favourite. 


Our Hall of Fame 3 at 3 showcases composers who were also accomplished musicians themselves. Making an appearance will be Holst (trombonist), Grieg (pianist) and Vivaldi (violinist).
