Brian Matthew presents another Saturday selection from The Sixties with the facts and stories behind the music.
Requests this week include Jeff Beck, The Kinks, Bobby Wells, Bob Luman (with the unseasonal Great Snowman), James Last, Vanilla Fudge's version of 'You Keep Me Hanging On', Terry Lightfoot and The Bobby Patrick Big Six.

The BBC session track comes from the Tremeloes, recorded for the David Symonds Show in 1968 and there's a Brian Wilson song written specially for Glen Campbell - a winning combination you would think, but it didn't trouble the scorers.

Join Brian for another wide-ranging selection of sounds from the Sixties.
