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


There's only one way to get through the night with a smile and that's with Alex, AKA The Dark Lord, on The Best Time of the Day Show. This morning we are still finding uses for hundreds of conkers, making sentences from the letters of our name, recalling those times when we should have knocked first, and advising Alex on what to buy his dad for his 84th birthday; a sword and some chain mail are now contenders. Hear more Pause for Thought at 3.20am and be amazed by the newcomers in the 4.15 One-Off Canteen.
There are new tracks from both Skunk Anansie and Francis Neve, and the Listener's Library track is one from Runrig. You can hear Record of the Week again from Neil Diamond and another track from Album of the Week by The Doobie Brothers. Nobody else, nowhere else.
