Brian Matthew presents another selection of hits, rarities and tracks from 50 years ago. Requests include Del Shannon, The Barron Knights, Tommy James & The Shondells, Hank Locklin, Ben E.King and Joe Brown. The BBC Session was recorded for Top Gear and featured Led Zeppelin performing Whole Lotta Love - at a shocking 6 minutes long, it was the first airing for their new creation. There's also Pink Floyd's - See Emily Play and the story of how the slide guitar sound was created.

Loose Connections this week leaves you to work out the link between Freddie & The Dreamers, The Shadows and Gerry & The Pacemakers - you will need to know your chart history! Brian also reveals a surprising fact about The Association. How many UK hits did they have?
