The radio station’s breakfast team, Boogie, Arlene and Marty, have been encouraging their listeners of all musical talents across Edinburgh, the Lothians, Fife and Falkirk to get involved with the ‘stay at home orchestra’ which went live on Tuesday morning.

A video shows listeners filming themselves playing along to ‘Carnaval De Paris’ by Dario G – the song of the FIFA 1998 World Cup in France – with drums, saxophones, trumpets, keyboards and bagpipes among the instruments on display.

Forth 1 radio listeners have created the 'stay at home orchestra'

One of the radio’s breakfast team can also be seen tapping spoons against empty wine bottles in rhythm to the tune.

Speaking about the Working From Home Amateur Massive Musical Orchestra, Boogie who hosts Forth 1’s Boogie In The Morning, said: “We all know how important it is to stay at home at the moment to protect our NHS and save lives. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun.

“We’re all in this together and we were not let down by the fantastic response we had from our listeners. I was really impressed with the musical talents and creativity of the entries – they definitely showed me and the rest of the team up…apart from Arlene, who was annoyingly, really quite good.”
