Montgomery Burns picks his favourite music!

Yes, all week Mr. Montgomery Burns (pictured on the right) of Simpsons fame is playing his favourite tracks over on BBC 2.

Well, it's not Burns really, but the man who's done his voice on the animated TV series for all these years; Harry Shearer (pictured on the left).

Harry not only does the voice for Burns, whenever you hear Smithers, Principal Skinner and Reverend Lovejoy it's the very same voice; Harry Shearer!

Harry's done a lot of other stuff as well besides voices on The Simpsons. One thing is of course Spinal Tap. Read more on his official homepage www.harryshearer.com.

And check out the music he picks for BBC Radio 2's daily show hosted by Ken Burns. You can hear it live Monday - Friday, and each show is also availabl to listen to for one week after it's aired. The link to Ken Burns show is here.
