Alex Lester joined Radio Tees in 1983 moving from Radio Aire in Leeds. After he joined Tees, Alex narrowly avoided a name change to "Red Lester" from programme director Donald Cline.

Alex presented a variety of shows which included the Morning Show, Blues Show and the Holiday Show Trains and Boats and Planes.

He left Radio Tees in 1986 to join the new local station BBC Essex, where he was the first voice on air. In 1987 he headed for the Radio 2 presentation department.

Since 1990, Alex has been presenting BBC Radio 2's slot through the night, which he fondly calls "The Best Time of the Day".
