Attention all students of London's more 'swinging' times: there's a programme on Radio 2 tonight at 8:30 which promises to pay tribute to the swingingest of all the swingy streets: Carnaby Street.

Ok, so it's presented by Lulu, but don't let that put you off. They've also enlisted 60s pop luminaries like Pete 'it was research your honour' Townshend and Dave Davies of the Kinks in to help answer the question "which came first: the revolution in pop music or the revolution in fashion?"

Answer: the drugs came first obviously.

We'll be tuning in just to remind ourselves what proper mods were, not these modern pretenders who insist on getting engage to their reality TV housemates!
