Ken Bruce notes in his autobiography that he got quite a lot of stick for playing the same sort of songs heard on the Golden Hour at the same time (especially in an earlier year such as 1963, as here) when he did that odd "late" breakfast show on Radio 2 - the BBC's response to that, of course, was to start playing much more pre-rock'n'roll popular music on Radio 2, whereas it would probably have been better in the long term if Radio 1's output had been modernised instead, earlier than it actually was.
