I live in Australia and have been a fan since ABBA first appeared on TV here in 1975. Follow my blogs for ABBA updates and check out my ABBA website ABBA Fanatic !

About This Blog

I created this Blog as a catalogue for articles and clippings about ABBA from Australian newspapers and magazines from the 70's. If you have any articles you would like to share, please email them to me to be included.
I am also interested in buying any Aussie articles or scrapbooks. Just drop me a line.
