Sorry, this episode is not currently available on BBC iPlayer Radio


The week's final instalment of random daftness and planned oddities from the Dark Lord. After the failure of Alex reinventing himself as bad boy, Johnny Havoc, he is now attempting to reinvent himself as a super-intellect. Needless to say, the attempts are failing and the thread has lapsed into him reinventing himself as a drag queen. The List of Listlessness, that is the things on the "to do" list that never ever get done, is getting longer, and today's News Hank is the hard-working and earnest wallflower that is Tara Palmer-Tomkinson.
Alex's choices from Lester's Library are a track from Bob's son, Jakob Dylan, and a classic Bonnie Raitt track. Your choice from the Listener's Library comes from Stan Ridgway. There is a final track from Album of the Week by Joshua Radin, Record of the Week from Eli "Paperboy" Reed and Pause for Thought at 3.20am.
