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


Requests this week include Jimmy Ruffin, Eddie Cochran's ironic Three Steps To Heaven, The Crickets, Prince Buster, Marmalade, Jay & The Americans and Ike & Tina's majestic River Deep - Mountain High. But where was Ike on the session and how was the final mix created?

This week's BBC session is a track from David Bowie for Top Gear which instigated the producer being taken off the show for spending too much money and time on the sessions. Loose Connections features Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and Paul Simon and their songs which have something in common - can you spot it? And if you like weird listen out for Gary 'Spider' Webb and The Cave...weird is the word!
