This week's selection of tracks includes The Cookies, Stevie Wonder, Chicken Shack, Three Dog Night, Cilla, Johnny Thunder, Brian Hyland, Crispian St Peters, Neil McArthur and Judy Clay & William Bell. The Three-In-A-Row features three B sides from 1962 and the Double-A side is by The Shadows.

The Sixties Chronicles looks back to when Procol Harum hit the top of the charts, marks Bing Crosby's record sales, remembers JFK visiting London and how his brother Robert Kennedy was assassinated, how the Rolling Stones were booed off-stage and were replaced by monkeys (not Monkees!) and how Brian Jones left and also the Six-Day War.
