On Friday 5 June at 9am a special programme – Your Desert Island Discs – will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4. It will feature music chosen by you, the listeners, that has a special resonance for you at this unprecedented moment.

If you have a song to share and a story to tell, then Lauren Laverne and the Desert Island Discs team want to hear from you. You can either share your story on social media (following the instruction on this page), or you can email your story and musical selection to

Think about your piece of music and why it is so important to you, then share what it is called and who it’s by and tell us the story of what it means to you at this time.

Music can transport you to a specific moment in time, or remind you of a special person. A song might have helped you to get through a tough shift as a keyworker, or served to commemorate someone you’ve lost. Or you might have a tune that has inspired you to go that extra mile on your daily run, or kept you company while you were out delivering food to vulnerable neighbours. You might have a piece of music that’s helping you look forward to better times to come.
