Spend the night with the Dark Lord, who will be keeping you laughing with his witty conversation interspersed with a great mix of music. More heartfelt tributes to the boxes that have enriched all of our lives; it's Day 3 of National Box Week. Keep an eye out on that neighbour who never opens the curtains and spends hour hammering away in the garage. He might be an alien from another planet! Tell us your suspicions in "I Spy Sci-Fi". And it's producer Dr. Strangelove's birthday; what do you buy the boy who sleeps all the time and wakes only briefly to pump iron at the gym? Help Alex with "Strangelove's Strange Gift". There's Pause for Thought at 3.20 and another visit to the 4.15 Confusion Hareem.

More from Album of the Week by Status Quo, Record of the Week from Emin, Lester's Library tracks from The Mojo Fins and The Lurkers, and your Listener's Library track by Curtis Mayfield & The Impressions.
