Sniff and the Tears

Simon Mayo | 07:42 UK time, Tuesday, 13 April 2010

Well astute listeners might have noticed a certain huskiness in the voice which deepened as the programme continued. It meant only one thing-the onset of a stinky cold. And here it is in all it's glory. I am squinting at the screen as I write this and will try not to sound too unhealthy come 5 o'clock. I always hope that the blessed echinacea will work its wonders but it seems to have been overpowered this time.

After 6 today the wonderful voice of Candi Staton. The woman who brought you "Nights on Broadway" and "Young Hearts Run Free" is singing on a new album called "The Mavis Project" along with singers like Cerys Mathews, Ed Harcourt and Sarah Cracknell from St Etienne.

More songs for politicians today (enjoyed the "Oh What a Circus" choice yesterday) and you can leave your latest ideas below. You can also help us choose our final song on the show. Today we need a Jazz showstopper to lead us into the hallowed ground of the new Jamie Cullum show. This can only be done on this site and the choice should appear as soon as we start at 5. Your cooperation is appreciated.

Meantime, I'll hit the vitamin C and see you at 5.05.
