Start another week with Alex who will entertain you in the small hours with his eclectic playlist and unique brand of conversation. It is the start of National Lost and Found Week, lots of tales of things lost and turning up in very unusual places, things rediscovered after years in the wilderness and things lost for good; it's more emotional than Toy Story 3. Last weeks' mention of Udder Cream has now evolved into its own thread, Udder Creams Are Available. Plus, relive those cold sweat moments when you have forgotten to do something of great importance in the thread, Don't Forget Your Memory. More Pause for Thought at 3.20am and business as (un)usual in the 4.15 One-Off Canteen.
From Lester's Library there are new tracks from Australian band, St Leonards, and Norwegian Eurovision legend Anita Skorgan. Your choice this morning from the Listener's Library is a track from Elton John's 1976 album, Blue Moves. There is a track from the new album of the week by KT Tunstall, and a new Record of the Week from James Blunt. And all of that is just the tip of the iceberg...
