Classic FM Drive with John Brunning

Weekdays, 5-8pm

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. 



John has a fitting piece to mark the British Beekeepers’ Association Spring Convention. He’ll also have some great music to kickstart the weekend and the final play of his Featured Album.


Two star pianists are performing in the UK tonight - Lang Lang and Daniel Barenboim - and John will be hearing from them both on Classic FM Drive. And there's a brand new Featured Album, from a young violinist who we’re tipping for big things. 


Tonight, John wishes HM The Queen a very happy birthday, and plays regal music in her honour. 


What on earth provides the connection between the British Pie Awards, being held tonight, and Beethoven? John Brunning promises to reveal the answer after 5. 


The St. George’s Day and Shakesepeare celebrations continue, with more rousing English music alongside pieces inspired by the Bard.


Are you one of the thousands of people who’ll be running the London Marathon on Sunday? If so, John Brunning is on hand to provide musical inspiration tonight! We’ll also wind down into the weekend with Smooth Classics at 7, and enjoy another Friday Film Favourite.
