  1. Thanks once again for another outstanding post

    1. Hi doors97426.
      They just keep on keeping on.


  2. I really like this series as I always seem to hear something I had forgotten all about. Thanks!

    1. Hi hotrodmike.
      all know the hits and then there were many great tracks that didn't always get the attention. When a big hit came along many great songs got pushed to the pile alongside. That is why this series exists to shed light on those sometimes forgotten tracks(Although 66 was a great year).


  3. BB
    It's like you turned on the radio from when I wad a kid. Smashing! (There's a word I haven't used in a while.)

    1. Hi lemonflag.
      Turn up the radio I say...


  4. Hi Butterboy
    Have you made (or are you making) one for August 1966???? If you are still making one, is there a chance you could do it by the start of August this year? Cheers!

    1. Hi Daz.
      They are usually available for the first week in each month so chances are looking good.


  5. You never cease to amaze BB. Thank you.

    1. Hi Phillip,
      These set are a lot of fun to pull together as well as to listen to.

  6. This is a fantastic site... so much 'new' music. You're a star and I thank you LOADDS!! :-)

    1. Hi caver,
      I hope you enjoy yourself exploring.
