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. More funny fakes and comic counterfeits in "Santa Fraud" and, new for today, when and why did you last exclaim, "What on earth is THIS?" Plus, more updates from Panto Lotto and Antler Watch, and Noel the Christmas Badger will be popping in with some more Christmas tips. Pause for Thought at 3.20am and choose from the festive menu now being served in the 4.15 One-Off Canteen; dare you try it?
Alex's festive choices for Lester's Library this morning come from folk outfit St Agnes' Fountain, and one from Paul Simon. The Listener's Library track comes from country outlaw, Terry Allen. You can also hear Record of the Week again from Adele, and another track from the latest Michael Jackson album. Let the buffoonery begin!
