Steve Woods - For the Record

Australian Pop Culture 1964 - 2017

Over the years, there have been many great books on Pop Culture. 

 

The problem for readers based in Australia is these books are usually created in England or America.  So often the content looks at The Buzzcocks or The Ramones rather than Skyhooks or INXS.

Now, there is finally a 450 page book that focuses on living in the Australian suburbs and celebrating everything Aussie and the best stuff from overseas - loudly and proudly.

Each year, from 1964 to 2017, has an exclusive chapter full of facts and figures that help create some of Australia's most successful radio programs like "My Generation" and "Classic 9 At 9".  All this information is now published for the first time.

The facts the figures and the fun of the soundtrack of our lives. A feature chapter on each year looking at Births, Deaths, Events, Entertainment, Sport and the music that we loved

  • How much were tickets to see AC/DC in 1975?
  • What is Australia's highest grossing movie?
  • Who was the original co-host of "Hey Hey It's Saturday" with Daryl Somers?
  • Which Australian TV soap opera did Ed Sheeran appear in?
  • When did Split Enz break up?
  • What was the best year of your life?

It's all here and more!

If you grew up in the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s or 10s - you will love this book.
