Brian and Phil 'The Collector' Swern, have been working hard to track down a rare song by Tony Allen from 1962 called (In The) Fool's Hall Of Fame - luckily for one loyal listener, their determination has paid off & they'll be getting their request played out on air.

Other 'avid' requests being honoured this week include The Crystals, The Small Faces, The Hollies, The Dave Clark Five, The Four Seasons, The King Brothers, The Beatles, The Peppermint Rainbow and Three City Four.
