Classic FM Drive with John Brunning
John Brunning brings you our nightly mix of feel-good classics.
For three hours every weekday, we offer all the music, news and information you need to make your journey home an enjoyable one.
This week's highlights
Tonight, John raises a glass to a great Australian conductor who was born on this day in 1930. And there's also an hour of Smooth Classics at 7 including some beautiful romance from Beethoven.
It's curtain up for the new season at Birmingham Royal Ballet and John Brunning marks the occasion with music from The Nutcracker. We’ll also be hearing from the star young pianist Danil Trifonov.
Tonight John marks an important anniversary for Mozart and it's something that happened when the composer was just six years old.
Tonight John provides perfect get-you-home music including a glorious recording of Dvorak for the Big Piece After 6. And if the day's been rough let John provide the perfect antidote with an hour of Smooth Classics at 7.
Wind down at the end of the working week with an hour of wonderfully relaxing Smooth Classics at 7 which begins tonight with the beautiful Mozart Clarinet Concerto.
