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


Between 3 and 5, Anne-Marie asks you to share your best part of this week: your Moments of Happiness. Plus, there's a hip-shaking Dance Like No One’s Watching tune.


Hear Anne-Marie's new Artist of the Week - guitarist John Williams after 4pm. And mark Yorkshire Pudding Day with Bradford's most famous musical son. 


Today's Hall of Fame 3 at 3 features three gastronauts of classical music: king of the dinner table, Rossini; pasta and eels fan, Puccini; and Chopin – who adored a Polish dish made of chopped beef and eggs. 


Today's the day when Leonard Bernstein became the first home grown conductor of a major American symphony orchestra, the New York Philharmonic. We'll hear them in action this afternoon.


The Hall of Fame 3 at 3 features a trio of composers inspired to write music by their travels - Mendelssohn, Tchaikovsky and Dvorak.


Friday afternoons with Anne-Marie Minhall are all about sharing your Moments of Happiness. What event, big or small, has made you beam from ear to ear?
