Alex, Radio 2's Dark Lord of the early mornings, casts a spell over all sea creatures and gives them 24 hours to spend as a human - would herrings turn up at the fishing tackle shop and hurl maggots at all who enter as an act of revenge? There are tracks from Phil Harris (famously known as the voice of Baloo in the Jungle Book) and new band, The Moons, plus a track from Canadian group, Tragically Hip, in the Listener's Library, Record of the Week by Mika and another track from Album of the Week by Beth Neilson Chapman. As the second Half-Time Hooter of the Week sounds we are only one day away from Feelgood Friday.
