'70s and '80s Aus Rock

A Retro Rewind episode. Saturdays and Sundays 12pm to 1pm.

Sun 26 August 2018

Let There Be Rock! The 1970s in Australia saw a huge boom of rock music, due to the accessibility of live music at the local over a bevvy or two. The music scene welcomed a newer generation of tough, uncompromising, adult-oriented rock bands. Think Jimmy Barnes' Cold Chisel, the Young brothers' ACDC, and Peter Garrett's Midnight Oil - all iconic acts that shaped the course of Aussie music, influenced the world and who still play music together (on and off) to this day.

It's music that has continued to stand the test of time - and now we can introduce it to our own kiddly-winks! This is our favourite collection of Aus Rock tunes, without the swears.
