My first musical instrument, the ‘egg harp’

They had it on Radio 4 (59:00)

The relevant fragment

So, when I was really little, amongst my earliest memories, I used to hypnotise myself with my mam’s wee ‘egg harp’, playing it’s tiny strings and listening to it’s strangeness. PM, the radio4 show, have a thing where listeners send in odd little sounds, so I sent in a recording of the eggharp. I had recorded it at Christmas to use as a ringtone on my phone.
