Published weekly between 1964 and 1980 and aimed at the teenage market, Fabulous magazine ran for almost 900 issues, and oversaw a period of considerable change in popular music consumption, from the early years of The Beatles' career to the growth of the music video.
First published as Fabulous on 18 January 1964, The Beatles appeared on the front cover, espousing the magazine's (then) USP: full-colour pinups. At the time, Fabulous's competition - chiefly New Musical Express and Melody Maker - were newsprint publications.
In June 1966, after a deal with Radio Luxembourg to carry its programme listings and related items, the magazine was retitled Fabulous 208 - 208 metres being Radio Luxembourg's broadcast wavelength.
At its peak it had a circulation of 250,000, and for the majority of the 1960s had the biggest market share of its type.
The images in this volume (and others) are from my personal collection and are published primarily as an historical resource for fans who were there at the time and subsequently.
