Suzy Klein presents a special programme to tie in with the launch today of BBC Music Get Playing, which aims to boost amateur music-making around the country. Guests include comedian David Baddiel, who has been learning the piano, pianist James Rhodes, and guitarist Morgan Szymanski, who will be leading an amateur guitar jam at Hay Festival next week as part of the BBC Music Day celebrations.

Plus conductor Marin Alsop chats to Suzy about the initiative down the line from Brussels. And choirmaster Martin Baker joins Suzy to discuss Westminster Cathedral Choir's new CD of music by Alonso Lobo, to be released this Friday on Hyperion.
