Sunday nights in New Zealand during the early 1970s were about two things: roast beef and TV talent show Studio One. The nation sat transfixed as a team of male judges in penguin suits quibbled over new artists and songs.
Decades before the Idol and X Factor formats, this squad of pop “experts” let fly, often at each other, dishing out savage feedback on novelty and family acts, soft rock groups and assorted crooners. And all in black and white. Many remember the night glam rockers Space Waltz stunned the judges (and the country) in the New Faces section with 'Out On The Street'. But singer and composer Anna Leah and her infuriatingly catchy song 'Love Bug' caught the spirit of 1970s TV light entertainment in one cute nutshell.
