Radio: IBB & Friends

Giovanni Celestino welcomes Lyndon Stacey to speak a little Italian with him...

Italian
  The third episode sees Giovanni Celestino welcome Lyndon Stacey

The third episode of the Italian Brass Band internet radio show 'IBB & Friends' hosted by Giovanni Celestino will be hitting the airwaves on Thursday 28th May (6.00pm local time), when he links up with Brighouse & Rastrick Band President, Lyndon Stacey.

No stranger

Lyndon is no stranger to the country through his professional working connections, with the broadcast going out in Italian live on their Facebook page. A little while later it can be accessed with English language subtitles through the band's YouTube channel.

The programmes have already gained a worldwide audience, with Italian ex-banding expats and the growing number of brass band enthusiasts in the country.
