Indulge in Kiwi nostalgia with NZ’s Retro Weekly Top 40 Countdown

Calling all Kiwis and lovers of New Zealand!

The New Zealand Retro Weekly Top 40 Countdown is hitting Australian audiences with a weekly trip back in time to New Zealand in the 1970s & 1980s, and it’s broadcasting from, based on the NSW Central Coast, from January 30.

Kapiti Coast based broadcaster Rob Walker hosts the show which is a countdown of the top 40 songs as they were on the official New Zealand singles charts for the corresponding weekend. It also includes a look at some tracks off some great albums that were on the official New Zealand album charts for that same year and weekend.

The show is 3 to 4 hours of reminiscing and is packed with audio from the artists, as well as a look at New Zealand news & events of that weekend, and because it’s an NZ countdown, it of course features great New Zealand music while also having some of the big hits from Australian artists and groups as well.

The show will play on Sunday afternoons from 2pm local Australian time (4pm NZ time) starting this coming Sunday, 30th January 2022 – looking back at the NZ charts from January 1982.

I’ll be listening. I hope they have plenty of Splut Inz tracks with Neil and Tum Funn.
