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 with more great tunes and unpredictable chat to take you through the night. This morning, Alex continues to search for truths of the universe, starting with the question: what is the difference between a gravy boat and a sauce boat? Plus, there are more tips on how to achieve Instant Sophistication and Instant Rebellion, and more tales of those moments of sheer despair in the thread, Panic Stations. More Pause for Thought at 3.20 and the doors to the 4.15 One-Off Canteen open once again.
From Lester's Library there is some classic rock from Ted Nugent, and a very early recording from Kiki Dee. Your choice from the Listener's Library comes from The Dan Reed Network. There is another chance to hear Record of the Week from Hurts, and another track from Album of the Week from Teddy Thompson.
Buffoons are go!
