Mal’s Music Memory – 50 Years Ago 1970

Hiya team, here we are at the end of July.

We’ll wind up our series of Mal’s Music Memory – 50 Years Ago 1970 with a couple of Kiwi Crackers.

A few notes from New Zealand history on what happened here in Godzone in 1970 –

Keith Holyoake was Prime Minister. Winston Peters said the other day that Holyoake was a visionary and our best ever PM.

The killing of Harvey and Jeannette Crewe at Pukekawa, Waikato, sparked one of the greatest ‘whodunnits’ in New Zealand criminal history.

The All Blacks toured South Africa and Rhodesia, the Maori players selected had to travel as “honorary whites”. Seems unreal in today’s world.

In May 1970 the Save Manapouri campaign presented New Zealand’s then largest-ever petition to Parliament. It contained some 260,000 signatures – nearly 10% of the population. We’ve got the power station and now the smelter is going, what do we do with the power station?

And these two songs, Cheryl Moana marie was a worldwide hit for JR and Hogsnort Rupert’s Pretty Girl was a big winner in the Loxene Golden Disc Awards
