This week sadly saw the death of that incredible talent Helen Reddy. In honour of her brilliant career and her enduring contribution to both music and the Women’s Movement,  Marty and Venetia pay tribute the immense talent and depth of female artists from the 70s. That decade saw an explosion of talented, independent women making music on their own terms. They roared, they rocked, they were invincible, and they made fantastic music. Vale Helen. What an amazing legacy you have left us.
