It seems that music instruments aplenty will be being heard as part of a fresh collection of Radio 2 Jingles.

That's because the tunes include contributions from the likes of the BBC Concert Orchestra, as well as The London Community Gospel Choir, according to the BBC.

They'll also be harmonica action from Paul Jones and guitar playing action from Huey Morgan involved. Both Jones and Morgan are among the presenters on the station who have contributed musically.

Overall, more than 100 music instrument players and other musicians were involved in the jingles.

"I'm delighted that some of our presenters are part of the new sound of the station, alongside the amazingly versatile BBC Concert Orchestra, in a range of jingles that showcases the diversity of what Radio 2 has to offer," said Radio 2 Controller Bob Shennan.

Listeners will be able to hear the results next Monday, courtesy of Chris Evans on his Breakfast Show. Other Radio 2 presenters include Graham Norton and Simon Mayo.
