James Walton makes his selection from the last seven days of BBC Radio

In Pick of the Week, James Walton travels from Burma to Orkney, from the outer reaches of the universe to a small record shop in Manchester. He hears perhaps the best song ever written about bidding for a toaster on eBay and has a ringside seat for the fights between Rupert Murdoch and the printworkers, Tippi Hedren and Alfred Hitchcock and of course the big one: Mark Lawson versus Russell Crowe. So, seconds out for Pick of the Week.
