- 8 March: John Peel joins Radio London.
- The Beatles release Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. The album is previewed on Radio London on 12 May; Peel is one of the presenters. He is so impressed that it becomes a regular feature of his late-night show, now renamed The Perfumed Garden.
- Emergence of the London Underground scene: UFO Club, International Times, Oz Magazine. Peel is supportive, attending UFO during his shore leave from Radio London and promoting the underground press on the Perfumed Garden - but soon becomes critical of its commercialisation in events such as The Festival of the Flower Children, which takes place at Woburn Abbey on 25-27 August.
- June 16-18: Monterey International Pop Festival - first of the big open-air festivals of the hippy era. US debut of Jimi Hendrix Experience and showcase for the West Coast scene; enthusiastically received in UK music press (centre-page feature in Melody Maker)
- June 29: Mick Jagger and Keith Richards jailed on drugs charges. Peel devotes entire Perfumed Garden to Stones music in sympathy; Times editorial of 1 July challenges verdict ("Who Breaks a Butterfly on a Wheel?"). They are freed on appeal at end of July.
- August 14: Radio London and other offshore pirate stations close down.
- August 27: Beatles manager Brian Epstein found dead in his London flat.
- September 30: BBC Radio One begins broadcasting.
- November 19: Prime Minister Harold Wilson announces devaluation of the pound.
- December 26: BBC screens the Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour film (in black and white). It is rubbished by the TV critics, but Peel defends it on the New Year's Eve Top Gear.
