Ah!
This looks good.

Born in 68 I can remember the pops from 74 but 76 is when the memory really kicks in.

I must have watched nearly all of these.

For the babbies amongst us, 76 was a long, glorious Summer and you could sunbathe safely then. Soeone did a study and showed it was only in the mid-afternoon that was dangerous, whereas now it's a lot more dangerous even in the morning.

I think there was a lot of good stuff mixed with bad; some might argue that the glitter from glam had faded and we did need punk to shake things up, but don't let anyone tell you 76 was bad for music!

what i dont understand that alot of 1976 survives but the would wipe the odd one, why was this, just randomness or was there a method to this butchery!
