Tracks this week include Linda Scott, Cliff Bennett, The Hollies, Tony Joe White, Dean Martin, The Equals, The Laurie Johnson Orchestra, The Move, Angel Pavement, Dave Berry and Family Dogg. Also Lee Barry who became someone rather well known - but who was it? There's a Double-A Side USA from Bobby Darin and an Elvis-themed Three-In-A-Row.

The Chronicles this week looks back to the start of the Berlin Wall, when Pete Best was out and Ringo was in, the London stage opening of Camelot, The Beatles at Shea Stadium (present one Brian Matthew!), the sale of the Queen Mary and the closing of pirate Radio London as the Marine Broadcasting Offences act became law.
