Radio Stars - Radio Session 1977/1978

Before forming Radio Stars, a couple members had careers in music dating back to the late 1960s with John's Children who released one album in 1970. In 1975 three members were in a Glam band called Jet who released one album in 1975.some members were also in the bands Sparks and Jook. In 1977 they became Radio Stars. All these sessions have very good sound quality. These sessions were donated by Andrew.
