Sorry, this episode is not currently available on BBC iPlayer Radio


All the hits and more - tracks this week from Dobie Gray (what were his other stage names?), Jimmy Jones, The Chiffons, The Velvelettes, Brenda Lee, Bobby Darin, Joe Brown and Lee Hazlewood; album tracks from The Who and The Rolling Stones (the full length version of You Can't Always Get What You Want) and there's the composer's version of Elvis Presley's Suspicious Minds. The Three-in-a-Row is chosen by listener Keith Watson and there's a Double-A side from The Vernons Girls (you know what I mean?).

This week's Chronicles looks back at Bob Dylan's first recording as a session man, the introduction of the first decimal coins, the last of the Dales and how the Little Mermaid lost her head.
