* Songs chosen as the artist(s) had played in the Hull and East Yorkshire area this week in a year of the 1970s.
** Part of a short-lived Christmas feature to showcase the festive songs of the 70s which weren't by Slade or Wizzard.

In the three months I've been doing this programme, the only artists I've found myself deliberately avoiding on the 70s Night are the Bay City Rollers.

Dear Mr DJ with the lovely quiffy hair,

Please play Afternoon Delight by the Starland Vocal Band for Rod Hulme, the man who took me to see Hull City at home in aroud 1984. They didn't score, and neither did I.

Rod sure knows how to treat a girl. Mind you, the Tigers were useful in 1984 - you must have caught them on an off day..

Starland Vocal Band on the way...!

I loved the 70's, my favourite time growing up then. I bought the &0's Scrapbook last year which features loads of cool 70's stuff !!
