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


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, it is Day 4 of National Spillage Week; colossal amounts of paint, custard, coffee and tea, milk, oil and slip have ruined rugs and reputations over the years. In "Mock Stock" we are admitting to those paltry makeshift substitutes we have been using because we haven't got round to replacing the original yet. Pause for Thought at 3.20am and another visit to the 4.15 Confusion Hareem. All of this and the second Half-Time Hooter of the Week.

There's another track from Album of the Week by Sade, Record of the Week by Michael Franti and Spearhead, Lester's Library tracks from Grinderman and Hard-Fi, plus your Listener's Library choice by Santana.

Buffoons are go!
