All this week, exclusively for the Early Breakfast Show, grammy award winning record producer Steve Levine will be creating a brand new tune from the elements of well-loved classic tracks.

On Tuesday they picked the bass line, on Wednesday the task was to pick an infectious guitar riff to lay over the rhythm section, and today you decide upon the best vocal in the world, ever.

The track has been built up by suggestions throughout the week and tomorrow Steve will hand-deliver the new track to the studio for Hawk to play.

You can also catch Steve Levine on BBC Radio 6 Music tomorrow night as he uncovers the magic and wizardry of record production in 'The Record Producers: Pink Floyd' on Friday 7th October (2100-2230).

This exclusive, extended version of the programme is an in-depth look at the recording of the song Breathe, from Dark Side Of The Moon; as well as the discovery of an early recording which Steve found by accident hidden on the Arnold Layne tape!

Steve also presents The Producer's Playlist: Pink Floyd Friday 7th October (2230-2300) in which he presents a personal choice of Pink Floyd highlights including See Emily Play, San Tropez, from the Meddle album, and The Division Bell's High Hopes.
