I'm really enjoying FlightFacilities's 1972-1982 Mix Tape. It's one hour of music, mixed in with famous news broadcasts from those 10 years. It's a surprisingly effective way to make a historical timeline and put events in context.
Here, give it a listen - and either learn a little history, or relive it:
For example, did you know there was event known as Disco Demolition Night? We didn't learn about that in history class.
