Guilty Pleasures of the '70s - All the 45s you didn't tell your friends about: Neil Diamond, The Carpenters, ABBA, David Cassidy, Cher, and one-hit wonders GALORE!
Strangely enough, I was a punkster in the early '80s! I Dj'ed on college station WQAX in Bloomington Indiana. While I liked the avant-garde music of that time and even played guitar in a few local punk bands, I never liked being restricted to just that music or being any kind of musical elitist. After all, it is only popular music, and all the different genres have more similiarities than they do differences. I chose to do a station here based on "'70s guilty pleasures" because I feel the pure pop music of that decade gets a short shrift by both rock purist critics and commercial oldies radio.
