Ken Bruce returns to Radio 2 and Duke Fakir of the Four Tops picks the 'Tracks Of My Years'. His first song selection includes one of the most covered hits in music history - performed by legendary crooner Frank Sinatra and a signature song from the popular Motown group Martha Reeves & The Vandellas. Plus there's a new Record and Album Of The Week and the Monday round of PopMaster. Duke Fakir is the only surviving original member of The Four Tops.
