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 which includes a track from the Album of the Week from Queen and another play for the Record of the Week from Sugarland, two more selections from Alex's CD collection in Lester's Library including something new from The Decemberists and a crackerjack of a novelty song from Brownsville Station, and Glyn Smith has his choice played in Listener's Library. Plus, there's surreal nonsense with the threads Added VATue, Lester-cise Videos and Nost-Drat-Darn-Us Calendar. And, there's Pause for Thought at 3.20am.
