It's Feelgood Friday on The Best Time of the Day Show with The Dark Lord, who is still trying to convince us of his inner bad boy, Johnny Havoc. There are more frog-tastic tales in Frog Day Afternoon, and new titles from the When Harry Potter Met Sally film studio include My Psycho Lady, Sheepless in Settle and Mary Poppins: First Blood. And our News Hank celebrity for today is Tom Hanks; well, it was him or Hank Marvin.

From Lester's Library there is a track from The Chieftains with Ry Cooder, one from The Jimmy Bowskill Band, and a Gomez album track selected by you from the Listener's Library. There is a final track from our Album of the Week by Free/ Bad Company, another play of Record of the Week by Meat Loaf and Pause for Thought with Ali Hutchinson. Nobody else, nowhere else.
