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. Alex is now an attention-seeing fame monster following the whirlwind of publicity brought on by news of his engagement to the Dark Lady, but how can he top that 'Cupid PR Stunt'? Also today, more suggestions on how we can use those brussel sprouts that will inevitably be neglected on the Christmas dinner plate; we are Touting the Sprout'. More updates on Panto Lotto, sorry sightings in Antler Watch, another appearance from Noel the Christmas Badger, Pause for Thought at 3.20am, the 4.15 One-Off Canteen and the second Half-Time Hooter of the Week.
From Lester's Library there is a new track from Nell Bryden and a classic from Brook Benton and Dinah Washington, while your suggestion from the Listener's Library comes from Michael Bolton. You can also hear Record of the Week again by Hurts, and another track from Album of the Week by Annie Lennox. Nobody else, nowhere else.
