On Air

Alex Lester


This is the year we joined the EEC which we now know (and love?) as the European Union. Can you believe that this is also the year that the first handheld mobile phone call is made in New York City?!  Meanwhile in the UK we were on a 3 day week electricity consumption due to coal shortages.



Slade: Cum On Feel the Noize

Wizzard: See my Baby Jive

Suzi Quatro: Can the Can



Creepy horror The Exorcist topped the movie charts this year and we also went to see American Graffiti, Enter the Dragon and the much more light-hearted Robin Hood.


Record breaking long-running comedy Last of the Summer Wine first aired this year, finally coming to and end 37 years later. Some other comedy gems also appeared on our screens such as Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em, Are you being Served? and Open All Hours!
