Hey groovy cats, it’s time for another edition of Where The Action Is. As well as the best music you’ve never heard from the late 50s through to the early 70s – including mod, soul, freakbeat, girl groups, baroque pop, folk and beat groups – we’ll have all of our regular features. We’ll play a round of the Connect 3 puzzle (can you guess the link between the three tracks?), have a Birthday track for a singer born on this day, the Half-Time Instrumental, a Foreign Language track (which country will we visit this week?), the Under the Influence choice and this week’s Two of a Kind as well as our weekly visit to the Death Disco.
