Brian Matthew presents another edition of Sounds Of The Sixties with all the facts behind the songs and the stories behind the recordings. Requests this week include: The Crystals, Elvis, Simon Dupree & The Big Sound, Lynne Randell, Fleetwood Mac and Neil Diamond. There's also a bit of a mystery - just who was John Paine? Even the Collector doesn't know much about him except that his producer was nicknamed 'The Crazy Cajun' who also worked on 'She's About A Mover'. Do let us know if you know!

To go with the Elvis request there is a track from a new Jordanaires compilation, and just what inspired Geoff Stephens to write Winchester Cathedral? There's also a track from one of our favourite American groups of the Sixties - Spanky & Our Gang.

Join Brian for another Saturday morning meander down the avenues and alleyways of pop's golden decade.
