Living in the 70s – Podcast

ABOUT THIS PODCAST

Were you born in the Seventies? Join us for the sounds of the 70s every Saturday morning. Martin and Venetia will take you to the decade of denim flares, burnt orange kitchen bench tops and the birth of disco and glam rock! Each week we’ll have a 70’s theme that we’ll explore, such as songs from disaster movies, movement anthems, one hit wonders, daggy duets, funky numbers, and disco tracks that steamed up the dance floor in many an LGBTI venue, to name just a few. The 70s produced some amazing music and we’re here to make sure that music is shared and never lost. NOTE: Due to music licencing requirements this podcast is unavailable outside of Australia.
