Get through the night the Alex Lester way on The Best Time of the Day Show. This morning there are a whole bunch of conversation topics going on, including: Threp'ney Brits - selecting three icons best represent Great Britain; Goods for the Gullible - selling worthless objects by stretching the truth: Personal Smallprint - should you come with a warning? There are more inductees into the 4.15 One-Off Canteen and Pause for Thought at 3.20 with Steve Williams.
From Lester's Library there is a Fleetwood Mac classic covered by Larry McCray, and a track from country artist, Josh Turner. The Listener's Library track is from Heather Nova, there is another track from Album of the Week by Steve Winwood, and Record of the Week from Kylie Minogue.
