It's the best way to start your weekend by tuning into the Best Time of the Day Show with Alex. It's Friday, which means it's a feelgood Friday, there's more fantastical music and threads including tales of your Ornamental Awfulness, the last day of National Bargain Week and the Dark Lord asks you to complete the sentence: I REALISED I OUTSTAYED MY WELCOME WHEN... The final play from Phil Collins' Radio 2 Album of the Week 'Going Back' is a cover of Dusty Springfield's 'Some Of Your Lovin'', there's another spin of the Record of the Week from Fran Healy, Mose Allison and The Quails get an airing in Lester's Library and the Listener's Library is courtesy of listener Richy who suggested 'Fire' by Laurel Aitken. Plus, Pause for Thought is at 3.20am.
