A radio DJ is at his job, working at the station from 12 to 5. He talks with people on the phone, plays music for the listeners, answers questions, and tries to keep people entertained as well as he can.
A visitor arrives, unexpected. He comes in and reads the news. He reads the news for 1:32 AM... the only problem being that it's still only 1:02, and none of what he's said has happened yet...
Relaxed and slow paced, "Twelve to Five" is unusual in style but has a theme much like many Quiet, Please episodes. Time, and reality itself, become slightly out of order.
