In the midst of Radio 2's Sixties Season, Brian Matthew presents the programme for all fans of the music of pop's most important decade. With facts, figures and trivia as well as the classic hits, rarities, instrumentals and album tracks, the selection sweeps right across the familiar and the less familiar.
This week the A-Z of The Beatles reaches 'You Like Me Too Much' from the 'Help' album. The EP selection is Billy Fury and other tracks include Marty Wilde, Del Shannon, Chuck Berry, Jack Scott, Barbara Lewis, Dion and Gordon Lightfoot.

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.
