Chris Hawkins presents tracks from The Very and a session from Player Piano, plus Fay Ripley drops in for some early morning laughs. The documentary is The Chess Records Story.

Chris Hawkins presents documentaries and live music lovingly hand-picked from the BBC archives. The Very are in concert at the Liquid Rooms in 2006, and Player Piano are in session.

There's also the 5.15 - your chance to choose the first request of the day, the Funky Weather forecast live from a broom cupboard at the BBC weather centre, and another daft game of Play Your Birthday Cards Right.

Plus, The Hawk's new best friend forever, Cold Feet actress Fay Ripley, provides more early morning laughs and shares another tasty recipe with a hungry nation - are you ready for Fay's Quick Crusty Cod?!

The documentary is The Chess Records Story (parts 1 and 2 of 4) - Marshall Chess tells the story of the legendary Chicago label set up by his father.
