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


It's time for the first Half-Time Hooter on The Best Time of the Day Show with The Dark Lord himself, Alex Lester. Expect a night of oddball conversation as National Statistics Week rolls on; more fictitious nonsense that sounds like important fact. We are still finding jobs for celebs that have fallen on hard times, and finishing the sentence, "I knew I was turning into my parents when..." Pause for Thought with Simon Lole is at 3.20am and the doors open once again for the 4.15 One-Off Canteen.
From Lester's Library there is a track from new band, Ghostlight, and one from Richie Havens. The Listener's Library track is a kitsch classic from The B-52s, there is another spin of the great Manic Street Preachers track which is Record of the Week, plus another track of the Album of the Week from I Am Arrows. Nobody else, nowhere else.
