/ Living in the 70s / Society & Culture / History / It’s a zoo out there


Dog’s, cats, horses, frogs and more! This week Marty and Venetia release their inner beasts and play songs from the seventies featuring animals (at least in the title).  We thought it might be a tricky theme, but it turns out the Seventies produced a menagerie of musical numbers celebrating our furry, amphibious and rodenty friends. So join us for some bestial fun, as Nazareth recommend some hair of the dog, ABBA warns us about tigers, Squeeze gets cool for cats, and Captain and Tenille warble about about a couple of frisky muskrats.
