Easter may be drawing to a close, but while Easter-ness is still fresh in our minds, Alex is re-thinking the Easter Bunny in time for next year. Rebranded as E-Bunz, he aims to be "down with the kids" after the traditional bunny has been deemed outmoded. He listens to gansta-rap, has an ASBO and if he offers you an egg, you take the darn thing and don't question it. Alex is putting stereotypes through the Gender Converter; "fur-coat and no knickers" is now "full jockstrap and empty sock-drawer" for the men. News Hank today is Heather Mills, only most of the headlines were in such poor taste that very little made the final cut.
Tracks from Lester's Library come from new band Wild Palms and vintage Echo and the Bunnymen, and from Listener's Library there is a classic from Gordon Lightfoot. More from Album of the Week by Scouting For Girls, Record of the Week from Train, and Pause for Thought at 3.20am. Expect the unexpected, and you are still in for a surprise.
