If you are looking for a reason not to go to sleep, then look no further; The Best Time of the Day show is here to keep you entertained through the night with a great selection of music and Alex's witty chat. This morning, we pay tribute to the forgotten sidekicks and unmemorable halves of famous duos in "Remember the Member". Laugh more at other people's misery as National Boredom Week continues, find Alex and Dr. Strangelove a suitable TV vehicle (The Muppets and Teletubbies both being popular suggestions), plus Pause for Thought at 3.20 and more newcomers into the 4.15 One-Off Canteen.
From Lester's Library there are new tracks from rock band The Union and The Saw Doctors, plus a Listener's Library track from country duo, The Wreckers. There is also another track from Album of the Week by Earth, Wind and Fire and the latest single by Phil Collins, our Record of the Week.
