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. Weekly features include: The A-Z of The Beatles which works its way through their entire catalogue playing every one of their 200 plus recordings. This week we reach 'What You're Doing'. There's 'The One Before The Hit' and also 'The EP Collection' - looking at a Marianne Faithful 4-track vinyl releases which featured in the dedicated EP charts. The Three-In-A-Row looks at cover versions. Requests and records include Alma Cogan, Savoy Brown, Procol Harum, Jackie Wilson, Millie, The Nashville Teens, Vicki Carr and Mister Murray.
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.
