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


It's the only way to keep yourself entertained throughout the night with laugh-out-loud chat and a playlist crammed with classic tracks, old and new. This morning, Alex is taking suggestions for more beasts and birds to suit the mood in "Animal Manimal"; the Ass of Crass and Mole of Droll are welcomed into the gang. There more cutbacks in "Split not Quit"; it is suggested Abba re-recorded one of their well-known hits as "Debt, Debt, Debt". Plus, new for today, we are identifying landmarks in the mundane and everyday life in "Hark at my Landmark"; you won't read about these things in any travel brochures, that's for sure. More Pause for Thought at 3.20am and the doors open once again for the 4.15 One-Off Canteen.
From Lester's Library there are tracks from The Courteeners and Jolie Holland, while your selection from Lester's Library is from Bachman Turner Overdrive (and it's not the one you're thinking!). Hear another track from Album of the Week by Take That, plus Record of the Week from Cee Lo Green. Buffoons are go!
