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 gramophone record to your friend's house; when making a quick phone call could involve lining up outside a telephone booth! This book offers an affectionate and lighthearted look at the fads and fashions, music, hobbies, and TV programs which defined the ’70s for many British 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 colorful account of what it was like to be young in the most exciting decade of all!
