The '70s - silver stacks, sequins, hot pants and jump suits - and the tearful reactions provoked by appearances from the likes of Donny Osmond and the Bay City Rollers. Plus music from T Rex, the Sweet, David Cassidy, Mud and Alvin Stardust. The early 70s, a golden age for the soul singer, catered for the adult audiences, whilst teenagers welcomed the arrival of Michael Jackson. Then, in the middle of the decade, from soul music sprang the Disco Explosion. Including performances from Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, Bill Withers, Rose Royce, and The Real Thing.
Seventies mainstream music found a place for disco, theatre, and of course, glam. The clothes too were amazing, as the decade saw a startling array of sassy costumes, from satin trousers and bobble hats to bacofoil body-suits and boas. Featuring performances from Abba, Sparks, David Essex, Wings, Kate Bush, Boney M, 10CC, The Carpenters and Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel.
Join Gary Jackson Wednesday at 3pm for Sounds of the Seventies....groovy!
