actually the page_load is called on each server control's click event.

So see it like this. (Old thing, your old code flow)

1) When page loads, u fill the list
2) you clicks the button, first the page_load will execute
3) List cleared and repopulated and hence your old selected value is now no more.
4) button click is executed, because no value is selected nothing is the output.

By specifing the the ispostback, the list fill be filled only the first time when page loads, for all other page-load events in the same page the list will not be repopulated.

First thing i noticed that you are using different session names  while creating a session and a different name while accessing it.

I.e. when you are creating the session you specified session name as "head", and when u are retrieving the session value you typed "bed".

Are you doing this intentionally ??

=========

if yes then are u getting the problem in creating the sessions ??

That is different.  bed comes before this page and if stament meets criteria the list fills.  
my issue  is that i am not able to pick up this value   Head.SelectedValue after choosing an option in my radiobutton.  

do you see anything wrong in code below that generates the list?
Me.Head.Items.Clear()
            Me.Head.Items.Add(New ListItem("LT40", "LT40"))
            Me.Head.Items.Add(New ListItem("40H", "40H"))
            Me.Head.Items.Add(New ListItem("40SH", "40SH"))
            Me.Head.Items.Add(New ListItem("40HD", "40HD"))
            Me.Head.Items.Add(New ListItem("50", "50"))
            Me.Head.Items.Add(New ListItem("LT70", "LT70"))

Put  your page_load code in the Page.IsPostback condition.

 Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)

If Page.IsPostback=false Then

        If Session("bed") = "Manual" Then
            Me.Head.Items.Clear()
            Me.Head.Items.Add(New ListItem("LT10", "LT10"))
            Me.Head.Items.Add(New ListItem("LT15", "LT15"))
            Me.Head.Items.Add(New ListItem("LT28", "LT28"))
            Me.Head.Items.Add(New ListItem("LT40", "LT40"))
 
        Else
            Me.Head.Items.Clear()
            Me.Head.Items.Add(New ListItem("LT40", "LT40"))
            Me.Head.Items.Add(New ListItem("40H", "40H"))
            Me.Head.Items.Add(New ListItem("40SH", "40SH"))
            Me.Head.Items.Add(New ListItem("40HD", "40HD"))
            Me.Head.Items.Add(New ListItem("50", "50"))
            Me.Head.Items.Add(New ListItem("LT70", "LT70"))
        End If

End If

End Sub



    Protected Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        Session("head") = Head.SelectedValue
        Response.Redirect("step3.aspx?id=" + Head.SelectedValue)
    End Sub
