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


Spend the night with the Dark Lord, who will be keeping you laughing with his witty conversation interspersed with a great mix of music. Today, there are more tales of nodding off in the nightclub and taking those forbidden forty winks at the funeral in "I Fell Asleep While..." More suggestions on how to make sports a much shorter experience in "Shorten zie Sporten", and we are swapping body parts with animals in "The Creature Swap Shop". More Pause for Thought at 3.20am and the 4.15 One-Off Canteen opens its doors to more unique newcomers.

From Lester's Library there is a vintage Judas Priest track and a new one from John Illsley, while the Listener's Library selection is a classic Kate Bush record. There is another track from Album of the Week by Rumer, and Record of the Week by Tone Damli. Buffoons are go!
