70s Music Chart February 20th 1971

by admin ·

This is the week that in Uganda, we had a new self appointed president. A mad man at the helm, who was called Idi Amin. More problems too in the U.S. as the emergency  warning system goes off nationwide, across TV and radio. It was just an error. This time.


Luckily the BBC charts were safe.
