Bill Bailey has explained to Mick and Jane on Kennedy Molloy exactly how you play one of his many instruments, the theremin.

BILL EXPLAINS:

The theremin's an instrument played without touching it, which meant the guys had to get Bailey, who joined Kennedy Molloy on Tuesday, to explain how it works.

"It's an instrument you play where you don't actually touch it," he said.

"It's got an aerial and a volume loop. It looks like a child's drawing of a robot.

"Basically, you move your hand closer to it and it makes a 'woooooo' sound.

"It was used in the B movies. The Day The Earth Stood Still uses it.

"It looks cool! I'm moving my hands back and forward."
