Happy new year! We are so excited to be bringing you another year of fantastic music from our favourite musical decade. For our first show for 2021 we’re travelling back in time to showcase a selection of songs released 50 years ago. These songs sound as fabulous today as they did when they first came out in 1971, with the added benefit of bringing back memories of when many of us first started buying records and forming our musical tastes. The 70s really was a glorious decade for music and many of these tracks have continued to feature on the air waves, at parties, on road trips and in our lounge rooms for the last half century.  We think that’s pretty impressive, and we hope you do too.

Living in the Seventies is brought to you by JOY 94.9, Australia’s only LGBTIQA+ radio station. Find out more at www.joy.org.au. And visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/LivingInThe70s. Listeners in Australia can stream the original podcast on the JOY website, or from iTunes or any podcast provider who uses the Apple podcast feed. Listeners outside of Australia can find an adapted podcast on Spotify.  We would love it if you could rate us and leave a review so that other people can find us.
