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


Alex, Radio 2's Dark Lord of the early mornings, presents his interactive blend of music and unique wit. We are now on Day 4 of National Failed Attempt Week; turn your failure into success with us. Our new superhero, Butterman, is in need of a catchphrase and a theme tune and we also explore the possibilities of jobs we can do in our sleep: playing a corpse in a film and nude modelling for an art class are among the suggestions. Pause for Thought with Jasjit Singh is at 3.20am and there are more newcomers into the 4.15 One-Off Canteen.

From Lester's Library this morning there are tracks from Earth, Wind and Fire and David Rotheray, and your choice from Listener's Library is a track from Tom Cochrane. Hear Record of the Week by Lady Antebellum, plus another track from Album of the Week by The Drizabone Soul Family.
