There's no need to sleep when Alex is on the airwaves with great tunes and daft conversation on The Best Time of the Day Show. National Underwear Week continues, there are more suggestions for how we can get Dr. Strangelove's sleeping routine back on track, and there is a summer sale for two days only at Morten Harket's Gap in the Market; 50% off all stock including John Hurt's Bamboo Skirts, Sue Perkins' Pickled Gherkins and Timothy Spall's Basket of Smalls. Plus, more Pause for Thought at 3.20am and another gang of goons are inducted into the 4.15 One-Off Canteen.
From Lester's Library this morning there is a track from country singer, Steve Azar, and some 80s heavy metal from Little Angels. We go back to the early days of Merseybeat for the Listener's Library track from Tommy Quckly and the Remo Four. You can also hear another track from Album of the Week by Brian Kennedy and Record of the Week by Brandon Flowers. Nobody else, nowhere else.
