How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You) Junior Walker & the All Stars

This was the first of only three occasions (at least of the shows where we have a note of the presenter) when Everett of England hosted the Fab Forty. Peter Young recalls that Kenny introduced the #19 entry, Wilson Pickett's Land Of A 1000 Dances as being by Wilson Perschnicketty!

Besides climbers that were played at the time of the broadcast of the Sunday Fab Forty, Alan kept a note of others he heard later in the week and incorporated them into his list.

Tony Blackburn's climber, a 4-track Cliff Bennett EP, features, besides title cut We're Gonna Make It, My Sweet Woman, Whole Lotta Woman, and Waiting at the Station.
