It is the final instalment of the Best Time of the Day Show with The Dark Lord for a few weeks as he sets off on his American Adventure 3. Saving the best for last, News Hank today is...Alex. Sending him off, not so much in style, but in shame. Plus, there is more talk of naked sports and Alex's recurring thought of being eaten by bears.
From Lester's Library there are tracks from Randy Newman and Tim McGraw, plus one from Sandy Denny from the Listener's Library. There is a final Album of the Week track from Jakob Dylan, Record of the Week from Craig David and Pause for Thought.
Alex will be making regular calls to the show while he is away, as well as blogging and tweeting. Visit for more details on how to interact with Alex.
Meanwhile, the show returns as normal on Monday with Tim Smith in the hot seat.
