Brian Matthew presents a pre-Christmas edition of the programme for all fans of the music of the 1960s. With facts, figures and trivia as well as classic hits, rarities, B sides, instrumentals and album tracks, the selection sweeps right across the most important decade for popular music from beginning to end.

Including this week a sprinkling of 60s Christmas records from an unreleased Bobby Vee track to Spike Milligan's version of Silent Night. The A-Z of The Beatles ploughs on as it works its way through their entire catalogue and reaches The Two Of Us. Other tracks come from Joe South, Tim Rose, The Doors and Johnnys Cash and Nash!

Sounds Of The 60s began in 1983 and Brian has been at helm since 1990, bringing to the programme his distinctive voice and unmatchable experience of 60s pop shows.
