Laugh away those Monday with the Best Time of the Day Show for offbeat conversation and fantastic music.

This morning is a nearly All New Monday. In "Not Complete But It Works" we ask what the point of getting stuff finished is when the nearly done version is fine and does the job. "I Feel Asleep While..." does what it says on the tin. It seems everyone has nodded-off at a moment when they really should have been awake at some point in their lives. And we continue "I Rechristened And They Listened" featuring objects you've renamed with a title that's more apt or useful.

Luncheon meat is on the menu at The 4.15 One-Off Canteen and Pause For Thought is with John Kirkby.
From Lester's Library there's hand-picked cuts from George Jones and Melvin Taylor while The Listener's Library track is by The Edgar Broughton Band. There's the new Record of the Week by Tone Damli and a track from the new Album of the Week by Rumer.

You'll wonder where the time went.
