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


Let Alex kick-start your weekend with Feelgood Friday on The Best Time of the Day Show. This morning, more rescue tales in "Yelp for Help", more daft anagrams of our names, and silly suggestions for how we can make our modern items look "retro". The 4.15 One-Off Canteen lets its rotting doors swing open for the final time this week, and Steve Benson provides Pause for Thought at 3.20am.
On the music front, from Lester's Library there are tracks from the latest albums by The Outcast Band and Toby Keith. The Listener's Library suggestion is possibly the shortest ever, but what it lacks in length it makes up for in jolliness; it's by Winnie the Pooh's mate, Tigger. There is a final track from Album of the Week by The Doobie Brothers, and there's another chance to hear Record of the Week by Neil Diamond. Expect the unexpected with Alex, and you will still be in for a surprise.
