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


It's time for the first Half-Time Hooter on The Best Time of the Day Show with The Dark Lord himself, Alex Lester. Expect a night of oddball conversation and great music. This morning we are offering cheeky alternative answers to those everyday questions in "When Manners Go Wrong"; we are teaching those lessons that are not part of any school syllabus (never play a trombone in a phonebox!) in "Advice for Life"; more clumsy clichÃ(c)s from TV and film in "Foreseen on the Screen", plus Pause for Thought at 3.20 with Andrew Martlew, and it's business as (un)usual in the 4.15 One-Off Canteen.
From Lester's Library there is track from brilliant new artist, Dylan LeBlanc, and one from Brad Paisley also, while from Listener's Library there is a rare 80s track from Princess. There is another track from Album of the Week by James Blunt and Record of the Week from KT Tunstall. Nobody else, nowhere else.
