Tune in for another serving of the show that will simply refuse to let you sleep. On the Best Time of the Day Show this morning there's another track from the Album of the Week from Eva Cassidy and the Record of the Week from Mari Harwood, two more selections from Alex's spare room in Lester's Library including something new from Ron Sexsmith and something old from Mighty Diamonds, and Remy from the planet Venus has her/his choice played in Listener's Library. Plus, Alex asks "what should I buy my Aunt for her 80th birthday?", how could he wisely/unwisely spend his £2.03 tax rebate in "Taxi-Earn-Me" and what's a no-no in "Email Etiquette". Also, there's Pause for Thought at 3.20am, more inductees into the 4.15 One-Off Canteen and a whole more of great tunes and unpredictable chat.
