Alex brings his own combination of music and conversation to early weekday mornings, making this The Best Time of the Day Show. This morning, Alex continues to un-invent things and find makeshift replacements, and there are some embarrassing tales of predictive texting gone mad. Plus, the doors are open once again to the 4.15 One-Off Canteen.
On the music front, there are 2 more tracks from Lester's Library; a track from a little-known 60s group, Favourite Sons, and vintage R'n'B from Clarence "Frogman" Henry. The Listener's Library track, suggested by you, is a track from the solo career of former Mott the Hoople frontman, Ian Hunter. There is another spin of Record of the Week from Amy MacDonald, another track from Album of the Week by Scissor Sisters, and more Pause for Thought at 3.20am.
