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


Keeping you away from the land of nod, expect Alex to play only the best selection of music interspersed with hilarious conversation. This morning, there are more admissions of how we are turning into our parents, pie talk, and National Statistics Week continues; make up an absurd fact, attach a number, job's a good 'un. There's Pause for Thought with Simon Lole at 3.20am, plus the 4.15 One-Off Canteen opens its doors once again.
From Lester's Library there is a new track from Wheat, plus one from Willie Nelson. The Listener's Library track, selected by you, is an early track from Heart that you may not have heard before. There is another track from Album of the Week by I Am Arrows, plus another play of the Record of the Week by Manic Street Preachers.
