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


Alex is here to keep you entertained with his unique brand of witty chat accompanied by a great selection of tunes. This morning, the Creature Swap Shop is open to trade in your body parts for those belonging to the animal of your choice. More ideas on how to streamline sports (i.e. just keep the exciting bits) in "Shorten Zie Sporten", and more tales of taking those forbidden forty winks in "I Fell Asleep While..." Pause for Thought at 3.20am and leave your common sense behind for the 4.15 One-Off Canteen.
From Lester's Library there is a track from British jazz artist, Ronny Jordan, and some classic blues from Johnny "Guitar" Watson, while the Listener's Library track comes from Arlo Guthrie. You can also hear Record of the Week by Tone Damli, and another track from Album of the Week by Rumer. Expect the unexpected, and you will still be surprised.
