** At the beginning of the decade, color TV was now the norm in the US, though was still catching up on the other side of the Pond (Creator/TheBBC was still producing some programmes in black and white well into the decade!). FM radio was still in its infancy, and AM radio still ruled supreme. By 1980, though, FM had made huge strides in adoption, and pop music on AM was starting to giving way to TalkRadio and other niche formats.

* This was also the decade of Salsa music, at least in Latin American countries and the Hispanic immigrant dominated area of USA. Most of the musicians today associated with salsa had been playing since UsefulNotes/TheSixties, but it was in this decade where a recording label named Fania reunited a bunch of renowned artists and producers who developed a distinct sound (nowadays known as "salsa brava"). For most of the decade Salsa had the stigma of being "low brow", until Venezuelan author César Miguel Rondón published "The Book of Salsa" on 1979, where he extoled their musical virtues in such a way he changed public opinion of the style.

* In American television, TV networks started paying much more attention to audience {{Demographics}} and decided to cater to young, urban audiences by [[UsefulNotes/TheRuralPurge canceling the remaining shows that appealed to older and rural audiences]] (''Series/TheBeverlyHillbillies'', ''Series/TheEdSullivanShow'', etc.) and creating more sophisticated series like ''Series/AllInTheFamily'', ''TheMaryTylerMooreShow'' and ''Series/{{MASH}}''. Paradoxically, that didn't stop new family rural dramas like ''Series/LittleHouseOnThePrairie'' and ''TheWaltons'' from becoming network mainstays.

* There was the end of the VietnamWar that had a humiliating postscript when the Americans and a few local sympathizers had to flee after the North Vietnamese took over everything in 1975. As a side effect, neighboring Cambodia went through its own Hell when the Khmer Rouge takes over and starts Film/TheKillingFields. Meanwhile, the US finds the only upside is that all the attention of that madness was that it drew attention away from their ally Indonesia invading and savagely occupying East Timor.

* In addition, while {{Saturday Morning Cartoon}}s, increasingly artistically shackled by pressure by parents' groups, were practically the only choices for kids on American commercial TV, Creator/{{PBS}} had its glory years with classic kids educational shows like ''Series/SesameStreet'', ''{{Zoom}}'' and ''MisterRogersNeighborhood''.

* However, the popular spectacles for the masses that defined older eras took new forms in the 1970s. The first half of the decade featured AllStarCast [[DisasterMovie disaster movies]] such as the ''Film/{{Airport}}'' series, ''Film/ThePoseidonAdventure'' and ''Film/TheToweringInferno''. The SummerBlockbuster arrived in the second half, with Creator/StevenSpielberg creating ''Film/{{Jaws}}'' while GeorgeLucas set the movie world on fire with 1977's ''StarWars'' entrancing the world and reopening Hollywood's eyes to the power of family audiences, which otherwise went neglected for most of the decade.
