This week just gone

Ten years ago this week:

Ricky Wilson and Mark Radcliffe swap jobs. As if Wilson would end up a presenter, eh?
Melissa Etheridge was happy talking about self-medicating with dope
Rachel Stevens made a bid to be a Bond girl and Madonna was trying to make a Kabbala kids TV show
I don't think anyone ever really understood they Boy George/sex worker/cocaine story
Tatu tried to fight back against Charlotte Church
Radio One tried a night in memory of John Peel, anchored by, erm, Colin Murray
Prince needed a hip replacement, and the Stones toured with a defribulator
... and Corey Taylor had a screaming teacher
