Laugh away those Monday blues by tuning into the Best Time of the Day Show for offbeat conversation and fantastic music. This morning, Alex declares it the start of National Wall Week; throw your arms around your walls and stroke them lovingly. Or fall over and walk into them. Also, we are giving ourselves slogans! Everything else has one, so why can't we? More Pause for Thought with YY Rubinstein at 3.20, plus - the lease has been extended - so shimmy on down to the 4.15 Confusion Harem for the first time of the week.

From Lester's Library there is a track from the new Status Quo album, and something new from Neville Skelly, while the Listener's Library track is by the Black Sorrows. There's a track from the new Album of the Week by Kate Bush and a new Record of the Week from Wonderland.

Buffoons are go!
