The cover of Bravo of 2 January 1976, featuring actress Linda Blair.

In this issue Bravo ran a profile on Blair as the first part in a series on teenage movie stars (the week after it was Tatum O’Neal), promised that 1976 would become Smokie’s big year, warned readers about the consequences of shoplifting, pictured Freddie Mercury in hot pants, offered a glimpse into he private life of Sweet’s Andy Scott, reported on the overnight success of actress Deborah Raffin (later a pioneer in audiobooks), and got Schlager singer Jürgen Markus to tell his favourite jokes (few of them very funny).
