Brian Matthew presents the programme for all fans of the music of the 1960s. Tracks this week from The Isley Brothers, The Kinks, The Zombies, Johnny Adams, The Rooftop Singers, Lulu and two Jacksons - JJ and Chuck. There is also a double A-side from Anthony Newley and a record ranked in the all time rarest discs list - but what is it? The Chronicles looks at events for this forthcoming week during the sixties: The Beatles' album debut, Matt Monro's entry for Eurovision, and Stanley Matthews' retirement from playing football.

And there's a sample of Brian's dutch!

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 music.
