/ Living in the 70s / Society & Culture / History / Australian sounds


This week Marty and Venetia take you back to the music coming out of our radios, record stores and music venues in 1970s Australia.  There are some familiar tracks, still popular today (particularly in advertising campaigns) and some tracks that we don’t remember but think are really worth rediscovering. Altogether they showcase just some of the amazing talent in what was a vibrant and sophisticated Seventies music scene.

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.
