It's the best way to start your weekend by tuning into the Best Time of the Day Show with Alex. Every Friday is a Feelgood Friday which means even more great tunes and inspired daftness to keep you happy through the night. More alternative uses for brussel sprouts in 'Tout the Sprout', and more suggestions for how Alex can outdo his engagement announcement, his 'Cupid PR Stunt. More strange sightings in Antler Watch and Panto Lotto, another helpful appearance from Noel the Christmas Badger, Pause for Thought at 3.20am and the final chance of the week to get into the 4.15 One-Off Canteen. From Lester's Library there is a new track from Admiral Fallow, plus one from Bette Midler's latest album. The track chosen by you for Listener's Library is from Rocky Sharpe and the Replays. You can hear Record of the Week by Hurts again, plus another track from Album of the Week by Annie Lennox. Buffoons are go!
