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 Day 4 of National Switch Week, there are more tales of how those on/off buttons have both enhanced - and endangered - our lives. We are reeling with shame from mixing our words up and inventing a new one in "Tongue-Tied Twaddle". New for today, is your rug always trying to trip you up? Perhaps it is haunted! Tell Alex about your "Possessed Possessions". More Pause for Thought at 3.20am and another trip to the 4.15 Confusion Hareem to ask those questions that have always baffled us.

There's another track from Album of the Week by The Pierces, another spin of Record of the Week by Patrick Wolf, Lester's Library tracks from Jeff Healy and Shona Foster, plus one of your choices from the Listener's Library by Tenacious D.

Buffoons are go!
