Johnnie Walker celebrates the decade of Knebworth, Glastonbury and Reading Rock.
This week he's celebrating the last concert to feature Diana Ross as a member of The Supremes - the 1970 double album Farewell. Recorded in Las Vegas, the show was a mix of the band's hits, covers and Broadway show tunes. The concert also marked the addition of new lead singer Jean Terrell, who joined the band onstage.
Also on the show, television presenter Fred Dinenage remembers the decade in My 70s. He is best known as presenter of the TV series How, which began in 1966 and ran throughout the entire seventies. Fred is also a respected news broadcaster, and currently broadcasts in the south of England.
Billy Joel's album 52nd Street reaching No. 1 in the US will be celebrated with sounds from the BBC archive, and another solid gold single will be loaded into Johnnie's Jukebox.
