Sorry, this episode is not currently available on BBC iPlayer Radio


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. Today, more taking from the tip and swiping from the skip in "From Trash to Treasure"; more sunshine clich├ęs in "Summer Sightings"; Alex talks on behalf of goldfish, traffic cones, belts and more in "What Are They Really Thinking?", plus more Pause for Thought at 3.20am and the final parade of the week for the 4.15 One-Off Canteen.

There is a final track from the Album of the Week by Emin, another spin of Record of the Week by Ron Sexsmith, Lester's Library tracks from Rachel Sage and new band, Tempest State, and some classic Echo and the Bunnymen selected by you from the Listener's Library.

Buffoons are go-go!
