Have you ever been inside a volcano? Or had a pillow fight with a Prime Minister? Or met someone with a passion for tracking down theme tunes, jingles - and even the background music for a promotional film on packing, printing and light assembly? Meet them all in Pick of the Week, alongside some powerful, eloquent voices talking about forgiveness and the joy and tenderness which can accompany old age.
Martin Wainwright makes his selection from the past seven days of BBC Radio
