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 Box Week. That's right, hilarious tales and memories of those beloved boxes in our lives. Plus, there are stories of flares caught on barbed wire and holes in socks exposed in public in "Wardrobe of Worry". More Pause for Thought at 3.20am and the first visit of the week to the 4.15 Confusion Hareem.

There will be 2 tracks handpicked from Alex's personal CD collection for Lester's Library, one of your tunes from the Listener's Library by Vampire Weekend, a track from the new Album of the Week by Status Quo and the new Record of the Week from Emin.

Buffoons are go!
