(#) #13 – Alan lists the Young Idea alone this week, indicating that Radio London had stopped playing the Joe Brown version of With a Little Help..., however Brian Long continues to list both versions in this, the song's final week in the Fab 40.
(##) #17 – Brian Long starts to credit the b-side Jackson alongside You Only Live Twice from this week.

Jon – not a solo singer but 'four fun-loving guys', according to these two music paper adverts – was signed to the agency run by Radio London MD, Philip Birch.
"Lead singer is supported by ethereal chanting, handclaps, harpsichord and strings in this unusual rhythmic ballad," says a press review of So Much for Mary,
which holds this week's #28 slot.

Aboard the Galaxy this week:

Hey There Little Miss Mary was the first climber allocated to Australian Ian 'Wombat' Damon, who also presented his first Big L show today. Ian had been introduced to listeners and interviewed on air by Tony Blackburn when he joined the station only two days earlier.

Promotions commence for the Disque Blu Discotheque, Ryde, Isle of Wight as a Big L disco. The Birch Agency and Fab 40 band Jon (see item above) have a week's residency there.

Mark Roman departed for Estartit on a 'Holidays With Deejays' package.

June 18th
The Radio London Trophy Meeting took place at Brands Hatch, with Mark Roman, Mike Lennox, Ed Stewart and Brenda Cogdell representing the station. The Roman Emperor presented the prize for the Radio London Trophy Race and dancing was allowed on the track - after the racing, that is!
