What was it like being a teenager in a world without computers, smartphones, DVD players, games consoles or the Internet? Imagine a time when sharing music meant taking a record round to your friend's house; when making a quick phone call could involve queuing outside a red telephone box! This book looks at the fads and fashions, music, hobbies and TV programmes which defined the '70s for many youngsters. If you remember riding a chopper, reading Jackie during the `Winter of Discontent' or watching the Bay City Rollers on Top of the Pops during the long, hot summer of 1976; this book is for you. A 1970s Teenager is a nostalgic and colourful account of what it was like to be young in the most exciting decade of all!
