Well I'm Peter Curran and I'm presenting Pick of the Week and what we really set out to do, and the feeling I hope the listener will take away is a lasting impression of the a week in radio from which the best bits have been... picked. Personally I was enchanted by - Debbie Harry, Hip Hop, Cycling, stories of Sleep, Modern Slavery...and an elephant playing a piano. It's is of course down to the individual to make their own choice, but I do hope people feel willing to be part of that essential presenter/listener equation.
