Harmonica hits Volume 1

Simon Mayo | 08:53 UK time, Monday, 1 February 2010

Today I shall be mainly grumpy. It's my favourite night of the year-the Radio 2 Folk Awards- and I'm going to be SO late. We record the last "Act Your Age" for Radio 4 tonight after Drivetime at the Comedy Cafe in east London and I will miss most of the splendid fare on offer tonight. And I can't blame anyone either as it is all my fault, so I might have to whizz through all the rounds in record time. But tune in on Wednesday as it will be a great hour with Mike Harding.
Last night went to see the extraordinary Midlake at the equally extraordinary Wilton Music Hall. Euphoric laments is how I'd describe most of the songs. Or is that lamentable euphoria? Great atmosphere and a wonderful night. And many many beards.

So tonight from 5 we welcome Paul Mckenna and we need an opening tune featuring todays instrument of choice...the harmonica. Harmonica hits only please! Leave below or email simonmayo@bbc.co.uk
