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


It's Wednesday which means it is time for the first Half-Time Hooter of the Week; even more inspired daftness and brilliant music from the Dark Lord himself, Alex Lester. National Laundry Week continues and Alex adds to the celebrations by doing his own laundry. "Man doing laundry", always a sure-fire comedy hit. Sadly, it all went smoothly. More confusion in The Similar Features Feature, and the question is asked, "What is the strangest thing you have ever seen?" We've called this thread, I Ain't Never Seen an Elephant Fly (somebody did, however, once see two camels mating). Find out who gets into the 4.15 One-Off Canteen today, and there is more Pause for Thought at 3.20am
On the music front, there is a re-mastered Hawkwind track (not "Silver Machine") and a new Coral track from Lester's Library, and Limp Bizkit cover a song by The Who in the Listener's Library. Plus, there is another track from Album of the Week from The Hoosiers, and Record of the Week by Robert Plant. Nobody else, nowhere else.
