These are the hands of Alexander Faris - the man who composed the Upstairs Downstairs theme that PM listeners have been improvising with for months. In fact these are Sandy's hands as he played the Upstairs Downstairs theme.

Recently, I visited Sandy at his home to talk about his composition, and to play him some of our listeners' efforts.

You can hear the interview on Monday's PM. And as you'll hear later in the week, the story doesn't end there. Wait till you hear what Nils has been up to.

By the way, Sandy's newly published (very good) book is "Da Capo Al Fine: A Life in Music".
