Brian Matthew presents the programme for all fans of the music of the 1960s. With facts, figures and trivia as well as the classic hits, rarities, B sides, obscurities, instrumentals and album tracks, this week's selection includes both Paul McCartney's version and the Beatles' own version of the Elvis Presley hit That's Alright Mama.

Including requests, dedications and regular features: The A-Z of The Beatles works its way through their entire catalogue; Stuck On Two replays hits from across the Atlantic which didn't quite make it to the top of the charts; The Song Swap features two hit covers from well-known artists; and Playing Hard To Get is for listeners who have a favourite song but who have lost the original record. Brian finds the track and plays it.

Sounds Of The Sixties began in 1983 and Brian has been at helm since 1990, bringing to the programme his distinctive voice and unmatchable experience of sixties pop shows.
