If you’re looking for a radio programme that will get you home without driving you mad, look no further than Classic FM Drive – our nightly mix of feel-good classics, hosted by John Brunning.

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

Seeing as it's the Air Guitar World Championships final in Finland today, John will pick a performance by the talented guitarist Milos Karadaglic. There's a sporting theme to John's Friday Film Favourite so get ready for a spot of running.

John celebrates the birthday of the composer Humperdinck by playing his beautiful music for Hansel and Gretel.

What connects Pudding Lane in London with Henry Purcell? Find out on Drive tonight, when we'll also enjoy one of Beethoven’s finest concertos.

Today sees the start of the World Sheep Dog Trials so John will be playing appropriate music by Bach, and there’s some spectacular Russian music for the Big Piece After 6. 

Here's something to make you feel old: today is the 10th anniversary of the first series of X Factor. John will mark the occasion by playing a piece of classical music that’s always used when the judges walk on. 

What happened on this day in history that involved Johann Strauss Junior, the City Council of Vienna, and a whole load of restaurants?
