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


Alex is here to keep you entertained with his unique brand of witty chat accompanied by a great selection of tunes. This morning there are more tales of disturbing decor and freaky furnishings in Ornamental Awfulness, confessions in "I Realised I Was Wrong All Along When...", naff bargains and baffling BOGOFs in Day 4 of National Bargain Week, more newbies in the 4.15 One-Off Canteen, Pause for Thought with Chick Yuill at 3.20am and the second Half-Time Hooter of the Week. Twice! All will become clear...ish.
The Lester's Library tracks are as eclectic as ever this morning with a new track from Tift Merritt, and some world music from Mali collective, AfroCubism. The Listener's Library track comes from George Thorogood, plus you can hear Record of the Week from Fran Healy and another track from Album of the Week by Phil Collins. Nobody else, nowhere else.
