It's 40 years since the death of Jimi Hendrix, and to commemorate his life, the Handel House Museum in London is running an exhibition "Hendrix in Britain" with displays, music and photographs.

This is one of the features on today's (8 September) Music Cafe, when Bruce MacGregor chats to Martin Wyatt from the exhibiton about Jimi Hendrix and his time in the UK. The museum has kindly given us permission to create a gallery showing some of their exhibits including "The Westerner", a hat formerly owned by Jimi Hendrix. which he wore during a filming session at Bruce Fleming's photo studio in London. This session resulted in some of the most famous Hendrix film footage in existence, showing him playing an acoustic version of his blues song, 'Hear My Train A' Comin'', on a borrowed 12-string acoustic guitar.
