It was the year that Terry Fox launched his Marathon of Hope. Unfortunately, it also had to end later in the year when cancer returned. Wayne Gretzky played his first game in the NHL in 1980 and on the Top 40 there was Leo Sayer and a different kind of song/video by Devo.
Sunday’s 70’s Countdown: DECEMBER 1, 1973
8 am – 11 am
The Young and the Restless starts on TV. The first hand held cellphone call is made and Billie Jean King beats Bobby Riggs in the famous “Battle of the Sexes” tennis match. As we turned the calendar to December, the guy with the really deep voice- Barry White- and a newer singer by the name of Todd Rundgren were on the Top 40.
