It's the best way to start your weekend by tuning into the Best Time of the Day Show with Alex. Every Friday is a Feelgood Friday which means even more great tunes and inspired daftness to keep you happy through the night. More daft solutions to Dr Strangelove's pondlife problem: what is the difference between a frog and a toad? Challenging stuff. Plus, more tales of eating things that weren't meant to be eaten in "Meals to Make You Squeal". Pause for Thought at 3.20am and the final intake of loonies for the week burst their way into the 4.15 One-Off Canteen.
Lester's Library offerings today are from country legend Marty Stuart, and a new one from Straight No Chaser. Your choice from the Listener's Library is from Loretta Lynn, plus there is one more track from Album of the Week from Sugarland, and Record of the Week from Wonderland. Nobody else, nowhere else.
