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, Alex is celebrating those hours of wasted time in "Minute, Bin It", taking suggestions on how to disguise his paunch on the wedding photos in "Where to Put the Gut?", and ideas for how to inject some excitement into producer Dr Strangelove's daily routine in "Strangelove's Strange Life". All of this, plus Pause for Thought at 3.20am with YY Rubinstein and more inductees are welcomed into the 4.15 One-Off Canteen.

There will be another track from Album of the Week by Duran Duran, another spin of Record of the Week by Rumer, Lester's Library selections are new tracks from Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears and the latest one from Whitesnake, plus your Listener's Library song by Can.
