Tracks this week include Chubby Checker, The Fortunes, Chicken Shack, Chris Farlowe, Robert Parker, The Thymes, Sam Cooke and Johnny Nash. There's also a Double-A side from Cliff. The Chronicles looks back to events this coming week during the decade: the mini budget of 1960 (how much did petrol go up by?), when The Beatles supported Joe Brown, Winston Churchill retired his seat in Parliament, Prince Charles was hospitalised, the film 'Help' premiered, Senator Edward Kennedy and the Chappaquiddick incident and the planned Marine and Broadcasting Offences bill to put the pirates off the air.
