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, instrumentals and album tracks, the selection sweeps right across the most important decade for popular music from beginning to end. The A-Z of The Beatles, which works its way through their entire catalogue playing every one of their recordings, reaches the bizarre recording 'What's The New Mary Jane' and The EP Collection - looking at some of the 4-track vinyl releases from the dedicated EP charts, picks Dusty Springfield. There is a 'Brumbeat' three-in-a-row and records by Zoot Money's Big Roll Band. The Searchers, Lee Dorsey, Bobby darin, The Outsiders, Bobby Vee and Elvis.
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.
