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


Start another week with Alex who will entertain you in the small hours with his eclectic playlist and unique brand of conversation. There are more bizarre sightings in response to the question, "what is the strangest thing you ever did see?", more tales of mistaken identity in The Similar Features Feature, and a whole heap of totally daft and untrue "facts" and figures for National Statistics Week. The 4.15 One-Off Canteen is back in business again, and Pause for Thought with Simon Lole at 3.20am.
From Lester's Library there is a classic Elvis Costello track and a new one from country band, Little Big Town. Your choice from the Listener's Library is a huge Madonna song. The new Record of the Week comes from Manic Street Preachers and there is a track from the new Album of the Week by I Am Arrows.
