It was a 41 year trip against the time flow to 1978 today on Flashback and we didn't waste a (negative) second, immediately reviewing the years events like the birth of In Vitro Fertilization baby Louise Brown, the Camp David Peace Accord and the beginning of The Hitchhikers Guide To the Galaxy on BBC4 radio. We relived the loss of Keith Moon, Terry Kath and Sandy Denny and wondered aloud about who would wear puppet mittens and turtlenecks. Of course, there was plenty of compelling music, here's the setlist:
