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


Kickstart your weekend by tuning into the Best Time of the Day Show for offbeat conversation and fantastic music. This morning, more hilarious admissions of how we are turning into our parents, Alex gets mistaken for a woman, it is the final day of the fake fact frenzy that is National Statistics Week, more newcomers into the 4.15 One-Off Canteen and Pause for Thought at 3.20am. All of the above, plus it's a Feelgood Friday.
On the music front, from Lester's Library there are tracks from 70s punk band, Tonight, and a new track from Brian Wilson's Gershwin tribute album. The Listener's Library track is from classic Brit metal band, Saxon. There is one more track from Album of the Week by I Am Arrows and Record of the Week by Manic Street Preachers. Nobody else, nowhere else.
