Tracks this week from The Earls, Al Stewart, The Marvelettes, Jethro Tull, Tony Orlando, Percy Sledge, Lulu, The Move, Amen Corner, and the Pretty Things. There's an Elvis album track, a Double-A Side USA from Ben E King and who was Ernest Evans better known as? Listener David Hudson selects Three-in-a-Row of 'famous failures' - or at least less successful tracks from well known artists. The Chronicles looks back to the 1960 Edinburgh Festival, the 17th Olympics, James Hanratty and the A6 murder, the death of Lord Nuffield, the Prague Spring, and when The Sun was sold to Rupert Murdoch.
