Welcome to the Hawkathon!

The live hour at 4 is kicked off by legendary soul man Ben E. King, live at the Glastonbury Festival in 1987.

There's also another chance to hear sessions from Free in 1969 (best known for their popular hit "All Right Now") and American folk musician Whip, otherwise known as Jason Merritt to his Mum, in the 6 Music Hub in February in 2007.

Plus, The 5.15, your chance to pick any track as the first request of the day on BBC 6 Music, The Funky Weather forecast, live from a broom cupboard at the BBC weather centre, will help you decide what to wear, and there's another daft game of Play Your Birthday Cards Right.
