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


Tune in for another serving of the show that will simply refuse to let you sleep. This morning there are more unexpected answers to those questions asked by ghastly nice people in "When Manners Go Wrong"; further lessons on the things you need to know in life that they don't teach in school in "Advice for Life"; and we continue to get one over on Hollywood as we identify clumsy clichés in films and TV. Andrew Martlew provides Pause for Thought at 3.20am and the rotting doors to the 4.15 One-Off Canteen swing wide open once more. All of this, plus the second Half-Time Hooter of the week.

Alex continues to celebrate the week of the Country Music Awards in Lester's Library, this time playing a track from nominee, Miranda Lambert. There is also a track from the latest posthumous release by Solomon Burke. Your choice from Listener's Library comes from 90s power-balladeers, Saigon Kick. Record of the Week is from KT Tunstall, and there is also another track from Album of the Week by James Blunt.
