Rage At Hood

Duration:
2 hours, 57 minutes
First broadcast:
Tuesday 05 November 2013

There's only one way to get through the night with a smile and that's with Alex, AKA the Dark Lord, on the Best Time of the Day Show.

There will be another track from the Album of the Week, another spin of Record of the Week, two more tracks from Alex's eclectic CD collection in the Lester's Library, a selection from you from the Listener's Library and Pause for Thought.

Alex is armed with the Drums of Pun, the Mallet of Stupidity and the Squeal of Campery; you won't get the chance to even think about sleeping!
