Flavour of New Zealand

NZ popular culture 1960 onward

Playdate was a New Zealand monthly entertainment magazine of the 1960s.  more...  Playdate's publisher (Union Investments Ltd.) was a subsidiary of Kerridge Odeon. Playdate kept a very close watch on overseas pop music as well as the pop music scene in New Zealand. When it started in May 1960, Playdate featured a NZ sales based music chart; thus the chart was a reflection of both overseas music and NZ music of the time.
Sadly by August 1960, Playdate stopped featuring this NZ music chart, preferring to feature two Top Twenty charts from overseas; one from the US, one from the UK.
