Seventies Pizzazz


The idea behind this project is to present the Seventies in an interesting manner with as much audio and visual content as we could manage without slowing things down too much.


Unlike most Seventies websites that are a hodgepodge of decade wide information, we approached this project year by year. WIth each year of the Seventies including categories in history, television, movies, music, sports, books, comedy, technology and toys.

Beyond the nostalgia and retro feel for those who lived through the time, it is also designed to attract the younger crowd.


We have enjoyed some success in that endeavor as this webiste has become quite popular with teachers who use Seventies Pizzazz to get their Middle and High school students interested in our historic and cultural past by assigning projects and papers to this and our other PIZZAZZ websites.


These websites are safe for Middle school and above.

Other Pizzazz Sites


Seventies Pizzazz is part of a larger procress still under construction. It includes Fifties Pizass, Sixties Pizzazz, and the still beta of Eighties Pizzazz. They all are similar in our effort to make recent history fun and intersting for the next generation.
