AN Antiques Roadshow guest wowed experts with a rare item he was given by Johnny Cash at a Glasgow concert. 

The man appeared in an episode of the hit BBC TV show which was filmed in Pollok Country Park in the city's Southside and broadcast on Sunday, February 11.

In the show, the man took along a mouth organ he was given by Johnny Cash at the Apollo Theatre in the city decades ago.

He said: "I've brought along Johnny Cash's mouth organ. I've been offered quite a lot of money for it, but I won't take it."

When the program host, Lisa Lloyd, asked the man the story behind the item, he continued to say: "I'm a big Johnny Cash fan and in 1984 I went to the Apollo Theatre in Glasgow.

"I was standing right in the front row and he called me out and he handed me down his mouth organ.

"I was shocked myself as he came down off the stage and threw it down to us."

Lisa then agreed that it was rare for the star to give away mouth organs.

The TV presenter said: "He was not known for handing out mouth organs, was he? Things like plectrums, you can understand, they often hand out.

"Of course in the 1950s, and 1960s, Johnny Cash had many hit singles.

"He crossed over many genres, didn't he? Almost like in the early days of rock 'n' roll.

"It was country, it was Nashville.

"Just a brilliant musician and of course, you've got cast-iron provenance it is something he actually used at a concert."

The host then told the guest his story was "brilliant".

She said: "It's a shame it's not signed, obviously, as that would have been the icing on the cake.

"And there are an awful lot of obsessive Johnny Cash fans around."

He then joked: "I wouldn't let you touch it! Nobody has ever touched it!"

Lisa then said: "I won't touch it. I saw you unfolded it from paper that you'd had it wrapped in." 

Following that, the Antiques Roadshow star valued the item at around £1,000 to £2,000.

When asked if he was looking to sell the item, he said: "No, I'll never sell it."
