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


Start another week with Alex who will entertain you in the small hours with his eclectic playlist and unique brand of conversation. This morning marks the beginning of National Spillage Week; tales of humiliation and horror at the hands of wayward cups and excitable pets. It's not just the Royals who love a title, we are decorating ourselves in hyphens and fake exotic sounding words in "Title Time", and in "Reunion Rules" we point out those inevitable occurrences at every reunion.

There is a brand new Album of the Week from Sade, a new Record of the Week from Michael Franti and Spearhead, Lester's Library tracks from Janis Joplin and a new one from Bedouin Soundclash, your Listener's Library track from Matchbox 20 and Pause for Thought at 3.20am.
