Brian Matthew presents the programme for all fans of the music of the 1960s. This week with tracks from Frankie Valli, The Fortunes, Jim Oertling & The Bayou Boys, Bo Diddley, The Seeds , The Jeff Beck Group, Led Zeppelin, and Cream.

There's two tracks from Bobby Vee in our 'Both Sides of the Record' feature, by playing his top ten hit from 1962 'Sharing You' and its B side 'At A Time Like This'. The latter was recorded at Abbey Road studios while Bobby was on tour in the UK, and also featured in the movie 'Just For Fun'.

As always, there will be all the usual features and avid requests, as well as a spin of the well known song 'It's So Easy' - but who sang it first?
