Elton John donates piano to BBC Radio 2 2

Sir Elton John, blessed with more than one piano, has donated his signed Yamaha DC7 to BBC Radio 2.

Marking Sir Elton’s unique contribution to the UK radio industry, it will be used in a series of unique live performances on shows including Weekend Wogan, Radio 2 In Concert, Jamie Cullum’s weekly jazz show and Friday Night Is Music Night. The piano will also be available to artists who perform tracks from The Great British Songbook on Simon Mayo’s Drivetime show.

Lewis Carnie, Head of Programming, Radio 2 and 6 Music, commented, “It’s rare that Radio 2 receives such a generous gift, and we’d like to thank Elton for offering artists who visit the station the opportunity to perform on it and, hopefully, interpret Elton’s own work.”
