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.
Today John marks the premiere, 50 years ago today, of The Sound of Music. And if the day has been rough, John invites you to relax and escape with an hour of Smooth Classics at 7.
Join John for great get-you-home music, including something by Liszt – who, on this day in history, found himself mobbed by thousands of adoring fans in Berlin.
John will be revealing the connection between Wagner and Alfred Hitchcock, and your Wednesday evening wind-down comes courtesy of Smooth Classics at 7.
St. Piran is the patron saint of Cornwall – and seeing as today is St. Piran’s Day, John will play a great recording of English music from a conductor was who born and bred in Newquay.
John Brunning invites you to wind down into the weekend, with Classic FM Drive. Our Friday Film Favourite is a John Williams classic.
