The Sixties Chronicles highlights the merging of the News Chronicle, the launch of HMS Dreadnought, Nelson Mandela's trial and the Aberfan disaster as we dig into the archives for the events of this coming week during the 1960s as well as a look at what you might have bought with your pounds, shillings and pence.

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 shows.
