Wayne's Music Saturday 3 April.

A one off mixture of originals from that behind-the-scenes record man Bert Berns. A selection from The Great British Rock'n'Roll Instrumentals, and a sprinkling from the "sick, sober and sorry" collection of 1950s country hits.

I'm Gonna Run Away From You Tami Lynn, in 1964 who went on to be a successful backup singer for The Rolling Stones (Exile On Main Street), Dr John, Wilson Pickett and Sonny And Cher.

Lonely Guitar Bert Weedon was to Britain what Chet Atkins was to America, but their guitar styles were totally different.

I Love You A Thousand Ways Lefty Frizzell - billed as "the next big thing in country music" in the 50s.

Cry No More another Bert Berns triumph, when he was working with Atlantic stars such as Esther Phillips, LaVern Baker and Ben E King.

Bongo Blues An early Shadows number, not long after the name change from "The Drifters".

The Golden Rocket Hank Snow - the singing ranger from Nova Scotia with his Rainbow Ranch Boys.

Piece Of My Heart a wonderful artistic achievement from Erma Franklin (Aretha's older sister) and Bert Berns - tragically by the time this song saw the light of day in 1968, Bert Berns had died.

Canine Stomp Johnny Parker was the hot pianist in Humphrey Lyttelton's Jazz Band.

and many, many more ...
