Kirsty Lang with the singer Loudon Wainwright III, father of Rufus and Martha, who discusses his latest album Haven't Got the Blues (Yet). It covers subjects including ageing, death, depression - and despair at trying to find a parking space. As best-selling Japanese novelists Haruki Murakami and Kanae Minato publish new novels, we discuss contemporary Japanese fiction. Briony Hanson reviews Guardians of the Galaxy, a Marvel action film about a team of superheroes from the studios that made Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, and - as Northampton Museum and Art Gallery loses its Arts Council accreditation for selling an Egyptian statue in its collection - we discuss what this means for the museum.
