It's Tuba time!

Simon Mayo | 09:03 UK time, Tuesday, 19 January 2010

Tuesday 19th January and we are lining up some rock 'n' roll songs with tubas please to start the show. This in honour of our guest after 6, legendary producer Tony Visconti. The tuba was one of the first instruments he played when he was in a brass band so it would be rude not to really. I feel some Danny Kaye coming on. But this might be a tough one. Any hits including Tubas please?

Bob Harris gets in touch to say he sang on a David Bowie song produced by Tony Visconti on the Space Oddity album. Will Tony remember which one?

Also today we'll be talking about magical assistants after Paloma Faith yesterday revealed her past as 'Miss Direction' with lots of sparkly pointing. The video of Paloma playing on yesterday's show is up and ready for you to enjoy:

Plus an interesting radio dilemma for my Mum today. At 6.30 today on Radio 4 my comedy panel game 'Act Your Age' starts again. 2 or 4? My advice-listen live to Radio 2 then catch up on the iplayer.
