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


Fight off those Monday blues by tuning into Alex on the Best Time of the Day Show for a dose of night-owl comedy and fantastic music. This morning, Alex is on a flight of fantasy creating a new country, Nocturnia. Plus, we are all being re-issued as a deluxe version, complete with a bonus mini-version of ourselves in "Deluxe Me". Pause for Thought returns at 3.20am and the doors swing open once more to the 4.15 One-Off Canteen.

There is a new Album of the Week from Asa, details on the new Record of the Week by Kate Bush, Lester's Library tracks by Finlay Morton and one from Blue System. And one from you from the Listener's Library by Love/Hate.

Beware, the Drums of Pun or the Mallet of Stupidity could go off at any time. You have been warned!
