First broadcast:

Come and join the secret society of gorgeous music and daft chat for people who are up at stupid o'clock.

All this week, exclusively for the Early Breakfast Show, grammy award winning record producer Steve Levine will be creating a brand new tune from the elements of well-loved classic tracks. On Monday the foundations were laid, with the help of Early Show listeners, who chose the drum track (Ant Music - Adam and the Ants) for Hawk's frankenstein-like song and on Tuesday they picked the bass line (A Forest - The Cure). The track will be built up by suggestions throughout the week and today we need an infectious guitar riff. The vocals will be added on Thursday, and on Friday Steve will hand-deliver the new track to the studio for Hawk to play on the air to the nation.

You can also catch Steve Levine on BBC Radio 6 Music as he uncovers the magic and wizardry of record production in 'The Record Producers: Pink Floyd' on Friday 7th October (2100-2230). This exclusive, extended version of the programme is an in-depth look at the recording of the song Breathe, from Dark Side Of The Moon; as well as the discovery of an early recording which Steve found by accident hidden on the Arnold Layne tape!

So it's your chance to be well and truly informed, educated and entertained this week with the 6 Music Early Breakfast show this week. It's your chance to tell your friends you helped top producer Steve Levine make a record!
