As you might expect, the David Cassidy Annual 1974 is devoted to all things David. However, the Annual also squeezed in room for short articles about Gary Glitter, the New Seekers and Slade (pages 10-12), Elvis Presley and Cliff Richard (pages 14-15); the Jackson 5 and the Osmonds (pages 34-35).
The Fab 208 annual for 1973 included a full-page photograph of the New Seekers (page 20).
Lyn Paul and Peter Doyle were also featured in a 'Who do they belong to?' quiz, which asked readers to match pictured items with the stars who owned them: in Lyn's case, her "constant companion" choker and in Peter's case, his ring.
The Fab 208 annual for 1974 included a photo of Lyn Paul (page 64) and a photo of Lyn with the New Seekers (page 61). Lyn was also featured in an article 'Look Pretty My Way', alongside other stars of the day such as Cilla Black, Marie Osmond and Olivia Newton-John. Peter Doyle and Marty Kristian of the New Seekers were included in a feature titled 'Beautiful Bachelors'.

The Magpie annual for 1975 included a small photo (page 6) of the New Seekers with the Magpie presenters Susan Stranks, Douglas Rae and Mick Robertson, taken when the group visited the Magpie television studio in November 1973.
Magpie was ITV's answer to the BBC's popular children's show Blue Peter. It first aired as a weekly show on 30th July 1968. The following year it went twice-weekly, with broadcasts going out on Tuesdays and Fridays so as not to clash with Blue Peter's Monday and Thursday slots. Susan Stranks was one of the three original presenters, with Douglas Rae joining in 1969 and Mick Robertson in 1972. Mick's 'Pop Slot' became a regular feature.
