Top site devoted to British pop in the 80s. Pop journalist Huw Collingbourne interviewed everyone from David Van Day (who likes to impersonate Ken Dodd in his spare time), to Toyah (who likes to dress as a bunny) plus many other icons of the New Romantic era and he survived the ordeal !

8 Track Heaven: – If you’re a young school student researching a 70s project, just one mention of the 8 track cartridge player will get you top marks – trust me ! Ask anyone who was there and they’ll relate tales of romantic liaisons in cars with background music played on the in-car 8 track (which would no doubt change from Lay Lady Lay to Nellie The Elephant at a critical point – but less said about that…). Curious ? Visit this slice of true 70s nostalgia now !

Warren’s Home Page – Francoise Hardy, Leonard Cohen, Runrig – lots of interesting goodies here.

One for our American friends, The Brady Hour is the best guide to one of the most popular programmes
