Forum - General - New Zealand Music Month 2020

Another New Zealand Music Month has arrived. At the end of the month I will post the biggest NZ singles and albums based on points from the Official NZ Singles and Albums chart but leading into that, four charts from the past. How I've tabulated these is as follows: I chose a chart and took out anything that wasn't kiwi. The #weeks column represents the number of weeks the song has been in the full chart up to that point but the last week and peak column represents a chart where only kiwi's were listed. Hope you enjoy:
The first chart comes from the NZ Listener chart of 4 september, 1970
