tQ pick half an hour of tunes on Now Playing on Sunday

Tune in to BBC 6 Music's excellent Now Playing programme on Sunday from 6-8pm for half an hour of music curated by our good selves.

Our segment will be 6.30-7pm, preceded by a selection of the tracks making waves online this week and followed by the Ultimate Ray Manzarek Playlist, in tribute to the great Doors keyboardist who passed away this week.

To this end, 6 Music are asking listeners to contribute to suggestions for tracks to play during that final hour, writing in a blogpost about this week's show:

"To give you a few ideas of things you could pick to honour such an important musician in recent popular music, you could go for:
• Your favourite tracks he played on in The Doors, Nite City or his solo work
• Other artists he’s worked with such as Philip Glass, Iggy Pop, Weird Al Yankovic or Echo & The Bunnymen
• Other acts who used the keyboard to play the bassline which he pioneered – Genesis, Led Zeppelin, Stevie Wonder or The White Stripes
• Some of his contemporaries and Doors label mates on Elektra like MC5, The Stooges, Love and Tim Buckley"

You can give them your suggestions in a whole host of ways - commenting on the blog, commenting on Facebook, tweeting with the hashtag #Doors6Music, e-mailing at or adding a track on the collaborative Spotify Playlist.
