Sorry, this episode is not currently available on BBC iPlayer Radio

This week's edition has all the stories and facts behind records by The Shangri-Las, Helen Shapiro, The Artistics, The Escorts, Scott Walker, Georgie Fame, Marcie Blane, Nancy Sinatra, Sandie Shaw, Perry Como, Sam Cooke, Louise Cordet and one of our old time favourites by Walter Brennan - Old Rivers.

The BBC archive session comes from Free and was recorded in 1969 for Top Gear. The Loose Connections features three tracks with a link to Prince Charles - and admittedly it is a fairly loose connection! The answer song replies to Neil Sedaka's Breaking Up Is Hard To Do and is by Tina Powers. All in all a great two journey through pop's golden decade, only on BBC Radio 2.
