Brian Matthew turns on the turntables for another Saturday selection of sixties rarities, album tracks and classic hits. Including this week The Valentines, Matt Monro (and Brian's memories of a concert with Matt at the Royal Albert Hall), The Temptations, Del Shannon (the 50th anniversary of one of his hits - but which one?), Chris Andrews, James Brown (we all feel good!), Catch 22, Joe Brown, Neil Diamond and Russ Sainty. There's a Double-A side from The Who and the Sixties Chronicles looks back at the opening of the BBC Television Centre, JFK's famous speech in Berlin, the first Juke Box Jury with five panelists (but who were they?), the first global TV event with The Beatles, Tony Hancock's death, and there's a sample to savour from Professor Stanley Unwin - Soundios of the Sixtlybodes has it all!
