Hollywood star and Rock'N'Roll performer extraordinaire Suzi Quatro plays the music she heard in her formative years, from doo-wop to Motown and rock 'n' roll, taking us through the fifties and sixties right up to the present day. Suzi often features American classics that never made the wireless over here and loves telling anecdotes about her American Heroes.

Every week Suzi focuses on a particular year in American chart history and once a month Suzi talks, in depth, to a special guest about their American influences.

Tonight Suzi breaks with tradition and remembers the cream of male singing stars of the 1970s including music from Marvin Gaye, Jim Croce, Andy Kim, Kansas, Billy Paul and Michael Jackson.
