Brian Matthew with this week's Sounds Of The Sixties including hits, rarities, facts, trivia and the stories behind the songs.

Bobby Vee says The Night Has A Thousand Eyes, Jimmy Jones is a Handyman, Elvis can't go on with Suspicious Minds and PP.Arnold thinks The First Cut Is The Deepest. As well as those hits there are requests from The Golden Ear-Rings, Manfred Mann, Lesley Gore, Herman's Hermits, Don Charles and David McWilliams.

The Small Faces fifth chart hit, My Mind's eye, turned out to be a deal-breaker but why? Meanwhile Episode Six's track, I Can See Through You, is considered to be a fine example of the group's work; but which rocker went from that group to Deep Purple? And who was voted top UK vocal personality of 1967? PS - it wasn't Tony Blackburn!

Brian knows the answers to all these questions - join him to share them.
