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


It's time for the first Half-Time Hooter on The Best Time of the Day Show with The Dark Lord himself, Alex Lester. Expect a night of oddball conversation: this morning Alex tries to find ways to help producer, Dr. Strangelove, sleep during the day, there are more tips on how to apply Mafia values to everyday life, and celebrations for National Underwear Week continue. Plus, more Pause for Thought at 3.20am and another gang of truly special people are allowed into the 4.15 One-Off Canteen for some cold porridge and mouldy bananas.
Onto Lester's Library, this morning he selects a vintage track from the new box-set by Ten Years After, plus a track from new country artist, Caitlin Rose. Your choice for Listener's Library is a seldom-heard Dusty Springfield song. You can also hear another track from the Album of the Week by Brian Kennedy, and Record of the Week by Brandon Flowers, The Killers' frontman.
