I wouldn't put an apostrophe in there at all, just a comma.

This is not Microwaves 
  - as Group owner, do I care?

Apologies everyone!!!!!

In my last email I inserted an incorrect, misplaced and totally-wrong apostrophe.

"The 1970s"  does not take an apostrophe.  They should only be used for possession or to show missing letters.  

 

There's a whole Facebook Group with 5600 members dedicated to correct use of apostrophes https://www.facebook.com/groups/apostropheprotectionsociety

I guess it's a bit like valves versus solid state back in the 1970's
