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


Alex is here to keep you entertained with his unique brand of witty chat accompanied by a great selection of tunes. National Boredom Week continues, there are more suggestions for the perfect TV vehicle to make Alex rich, and there is a new thread in which you can pick the foodstuff of your choice to replace your fingers. There are more attention-seeking, slop-scoffing newcomers allowed into the 4.15 One-Off Canteen, and more Pause for Thought at 3.20.
The Dark Lord plays a new track by Interpol and a tune by Dwight Yoakam from Lester's Library, plus a classic Oasis song suggested by you from the Listener's Library. You can hear another tune from Album of the Week by Earth, Wind & Fire, plus another chance to hear the Record of the Week from Phil Collins. Buffoons are go!
