Andy Kershaw's Pick of the Week takes us right back to the origins of radio and into the chaos of Kinshasa. There's a revolutionary stockbroker on the streets of Cairo and a fearless report from the front lines of fake tanning. You'll hear some of the best and most concise analysis of the turbulence in the middle east and the origins of that, and there's music from The Staves and the Alabama Shakes. And if you thought you imagined you saw John Humphrys wandering around Glastonbury last weekend because you were hallucinating you weren't.
