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


Don’t miss a particularly brilliant performance from our Artist of the Week, Jean-Yves Thibaudet this afternoon. Plus, seeing as it’s Friday, there’ll be a Dance Like No One’s Watching tune to get you shimmying round the kitchen or the office!


Today Anne-Marie has music by the composer who, on this day, made his conducting debut.


In the Hall of Fame 3 at 3, Anne-Marie Minhall marks some important ‘firsts’ for Bach, Saint-Saens and Shostakovich.


What did Rossini make of Wagner? What did Beethoven think of Rossini? And what were Liszt’s thoughts on Brahms? Anne-Marie brings you a barbed Hall of Fame 3 at 3.


For the USA it's a big day today: Thanksgiving. If you’re far from home on this side of the pond and would like a mention on Classic FM Requests, get in touch with Anne-Marie. She’ll play you something as American as apple pie.


Today’s Hall of Fame 3 at 3 is devoted to music you’ll have heard on the small screen as theme tunes – from The Apprentice to X Factor.
