Ask Elvis and Neil Oliver

3 hours, 5 minutes
First broadcast:
Friday 01 April 2011

Steve and Tim Smith bring you three hours of brain-busting Factoids including trivia about the very first rubber band, how many teeth a bear has and which country could sport a 10ft high wall around its perimeter if it used all the stone from Egypt's Great Pyramid.

'Coast' presenter Neil Oliver speaks to Steve and Tim from a somewhat more unglamourous location than he's used to and Ask Elvis returns, this week sporting a white stripe across his nose and wearing an elaborate frockcoat as he pays tribute to his favourite 80s pop star.

Marc Aluzzi from Spalding in Lincolnshire chooses his all-time favourite tunes in today's Non Stop Oldies including tracks from Snow Patrol, Billy Ocean and Soul II Soul.
