Looking forward to the charts around the 21st June... when four Liverpudlians step foot in Wellington
You won't have to wait that long Joe. I just had a look forwards to that date. The chart in question is 25th June. It's not that exciting with only one Beatle song in the chart. Bet you can't guess which one, though.

Stab in the dark... I'll say "Love Me Do" has a second resurgence.
Nope. Clue. It wasn't a single...for them
Hi Tempest, would it by chance be "World Without Love" by "Peter and Gordon"?

Regards John.

P.S. I had a sneak peek at our charts for the same period as they toured here first for 2 weeks 11-6-64/20-6-64 before going on to N.Z. on 21-6-64 as the date gets closer, if your interested, I'll send you the chart placings for 11-6-64, 20-6-64 & 27-6-64.
Maybe The Rolling Stones second single "I Wanna Be Your Man"...
Sorry, I sent you off on a wild goose chase. It was a song sung by The Beatles but not one of their songs.

Either "Long Tall Sally" or "Roll Over Beethoven"
And the prize goes to....... (drum roll please).......Album Guru Joe. Long Tall Sally was the number 3 on June 25 1964. Good call Joe.
Hi Tempest, I'm a little confused, on the 26/9/2013 you listed all the No. 1's from the 1950's to 2000's and for 23/4/1964 you have "Do You Want To Know A Secret" as being No. 1 yet here you have "Twist And Shout" as being No. 1 now I realize they both appear on the "Twist And Shout" E.P. but did "Do You Want To Know A Secret" chart and if so when?

Regards John.
Good spotting John. The Lever charts have been very confusing.
When I first discovered them I wrote up that list of number ones. Some time later, a different source became available which filled in a few gaps. This source is considered to be reliable as it was known where it came from. Problem was, they were slightly different from the originals. After much debate with some other people who are trying to find missing charts it was decided to use the charts I am now currently posting. Another reason to use the second source was it filled in some gaps were charts were either completely or partially missing.
It needs to be mentioned too that these charts were never officially published. What we are relying on is actual recorded programmes from the radio (which are very scarce) or someone writing down the charts as they listened to the show. In some cases the artist was not written down too so that also proves a bit tricky. There was a complete set until about 1991 but someone at Radio NZ in their great wisdom decided to have a clean out, and threw they away.
Hope that answers your question. I must go back and fix those number ones at some stage. Thanx for pointing that out.

Hi Tempest, thanks for the quick reply I was going to mention this to you later, but I'll bring it up now both "Do You Want To Know A Secret" and "Michelle" even though they both charted here in Australia they weren't done by "The Beatles" "Do You Want To Know A Secret" was done by "Billy J Kramer" and "Michelle" in some states was done by "The Overlanders" and in other states by "David and Jonathan" who are better known for "Lovers Of The World Unite", so N.Z. is one up on Oz.

Regards John.
Hi John
Those songs were done by many artists giving them hits as well. I have an original copy of the Billy J Kramer version on UK 7" vinyl. I didn't know about theDavid and Jonathan version. Thanx for your thoughts.

I mentioned earlier about the Beatles song Long Tall Sally being in the chart on 25 June, 1964. As I redo these charts, I'm noticing quite a difference. As stated before, the source I am using is more reliable than the original source. I just had a look ahead. The new source has no Beatles song at all in the chart on June 25. Sorry about that.
Hi Tempest, thanks for the reply if you get a chance, have a listen to the "David and Jonathen" version it sounds a lot more closer to the "Beatles" version then the "Overlanders" version.

Also I don't want to spoil the party, (another "Beatle" reference) but there is a "Beatles" song in the chart in question, but it's not done by them I won't ruin the surprise though.

Regards John.
Hi John. That song you referred to with a Beatle reference, is it a song written by them but not released by them? If it's the one I think it is, that will enter the chart before May is out.
Hi Tempest, just between you and me, yes your right but it's just our little secret.

Everyone else will have to wait till the 25/6/64 chart.
He, He, He.

Hi Tempest, in my posting dated 29/7/2016, I mentioned I have the charts for the 2 weeks "The Beatles" toured Australia as well as their week in N.Z. tomorrow I'll post the chart for the 11/6/64.

Also in your posting dated the 30/6/2016, you explained to me about the N.Z. stations, we have the same sort of thing here, N.S.W. and Canberra are 2, Victoria 3, Queensland 4, S. Australia 5, W. Australia 6, Tasmania 7 and The Northern Territory 8.

Regards John.
Thanx John. The comparison will be great to see.
There are now no radio stations in New Zealand starting with a number. They all broadcast in Auckland now anyway. Even Radio Dunedin which is supposed to be a Dunedin radio station, broadcasts there along with Balclutha's Big River Radio. What's good for Auckland is apparently what the whole country is interested in. Don't get me started on that one. lol. A really good station, though, is The Sound. You can hear it online too.
John
Hi Tempest, I think I misled you a little I'll only listing the "Beatle" songs that were on the particular charts not the whole chart.

Regards John.

P.S. you mentioned that none of the radio stations in N.Z. have a number, I've come across a station on line and they call them selves "Hits" F.M. 3ZB. have you heard of it?
Hi John
Thanx for putting me straight on that. As a Beatles fan it will still be great.
The ZB stations throughout the country are the original names of what is now The Hits. 1ZB was Auckland, 2ZB Wellington, 3ZB Christchurch and 4ZB Dunedin. They were all moved to Auckland and named Classic Hits. Recently they rebranded as The Hits.

No. 3) World Without Love. Peter and Gordon.

Regards John.
Hahahahaha....that's gold!!! The aftermath of the tour down under is bonkers!!! Love it
I did pick up on that John. Peter and Gordon were one of many artists who used songs by The Beatles, including The Rolling Stones.
Those charts in Oz are nuts. Just shows you their influence eh?

Hi Tempest, you're quite right, I don't know about N.Z., but here in Australia to commemorate the 50th anniversary of "The Beatles" tour a number of museums in both Sydney and Melbourne had a Beatle expo of there tour here with a lot of memorabilia including posters, original 45's, EP's, LP's, original film clips of there tour as well as some of the original concert tickets.

For some reason however Brisbane didn't do any such expo, so a friend of mine in Toowoomba (which is country town in Queensland) decided to hold his own expo using his own memorabilia and he teamed up with the local museum "The Cobb & Co" and it was very successful, it ran from 13/6/2014 to 8/2/2015 ending with an open air screening of "A Hard Days Night" in nearby Queens Park.

If your interested, you can "Google" Beatle expo in Toowoomba and have a look at his collection, his name is Jeff Black.

Regards John.

P.S. I'm glad you enjoyed the charts over the last 3 days.
Thanx John.
I'm a huge Beatle fan myself so I am of course, interested. When in Liverpool in 2014 I visited the Beatles Story at Albert Docks. I have heaps of photos from there if your interested. Anyway, I recommend it if you are ever over that way. I was born there too by the way.

Hi Tempest, thank for your offer regarding the photos of "Albert Docks", I've just had a quick look on Google, I'll have to add it to my "Bucket List" of things to see and do, as my Mother's side of the family came from Ireland and my Father's side of the family came from Scotland, but they both were born in Queensland.

Hi Tempest, is there some way "Forum" can block out "Frumakaa" from both your sites as well as "Certifications"? Because for one thing it doesn't have anything to do with either subject and for another thing I'm sure what he is doing is highly illegal offering fake ID'S,
I would have thought that would have been a federal offence.

Hi Tempest, this doesn't have anything to do with the charts, but you mentioned in your posting dated the 12/8/2016 you were born and grew up in Liverpool, 1) what was it like, with all those famous pop stars from that era preforming at "The Cavern Club" acts like "Cilla Black", "The Beatles", "Gerry and The Pacemakers" & so forth? 2) did you live all that far from "The Cavern Club"?

I lived and was born in Wallasey which is actually across the Mersey from Liverpool. I was born in 1961 so my memory wasn't filled with Beat Groups. I do remember, though, having a look around a submarine with me dad. The song Yellow Submarine was big then and the Naval Officer told me they were going to paint it Yellow.
I have several records by various Liverpool acts like The Beatles, Cilla, Billy J, Gerry and The Searchers which were all bought for me at the time. Even from a young age I was interested in music and started collecting records at the age of three. I had moved to Elesmere Port by the late 60's and was more awake to music then, but it was a wider variety of acts.
My first Beatles album was actually the compilation Rock And Roll Music which I bought meself in 1973. I had been in New Zealand two years at that stage.
Probably not what you expected, John, but that's my recollection.
When I was over there in 2014 I visited the NEW Cavern Club. It's a pretty dingy back alley place so I never ventured inside. The Beatles Story at Albert Docks is well worth a visit though. They have recreated things from the Beatles days and it feels like you are actually there.

Yes Joe, some great music coming through here.
And that is my final chart for a few weeks as I'm off on holiday. Perth here I come. See you in two weeks.
Hi Tempest, I hope you and your family have a save trip in W.A. and I look forward to your remaining charts for 1964 as well as what ever charts you may have for 1965.

Regards John.
Hi Tempest, I realize your still on holidays and probably won't be back till some time next week, but I heard on the news the other day, that the North Island was hit by a severe earth quake, I'm not sure if you live in the North or South Island but I hope everything is alright.

Regards

John.
Hi John
I'm back home today.
I felt the earthquake, quite a big one. It was 7.1 and 22 km deep. Luckily it was 120km off the coast so not much damage.
I live 5 hours south of Christchurch at the bottom of the South Island. I was in the top of the North Island when it struck. Thanx for your concern.

Hi Tempest, welcome back, from what I understand it's mostly the North Island that gets all the earthquakes, any way I'm glad you and your family are save.

Regards

John.
The major fault line runs the length of the country from the west coast of the South Island, through Wellington and the centre of the North Island. Earthquakes van happen anywhere. Christchurch still gets lots. If you want to see more download the GeoNet app. It shows you every quake NZ gets in real time.

Hi Tempest, while were on the subject of "The Beatles", I don't know about any of the cinemas in N.Z., but over here in all cinemas from the 16/9/2016 there will be a movie being released called "The Beatles Eight Days A Week, The touring Years" released by "Ron Howard" of "Happy Day's" fame.

It should be pretty good.

Regards

John.
Thanx John. I'll keep an eye out for that.

Hi Tempest, I did some research and it's screening at most "Event" cinemas as well as some independents in N.Z.

Also in my posting dated 11/8/2016, I mentioned a friend of mine who set up his own "Beatle" expo in Toowoomba for the 50 Anniversary of Their tour, that same friend has been asked to say a few words about the Movie before it screens in Brisbane. He is a real Beatle fan anything you want to know about them he's the one to ask.

Regards

John.
Thanx John. The closest cinema to where I live is an hour away and there are no Event Cinema's down our way. I may have to wait for the DVD. That would be a real honour for your friend. Wow!

Hi Tempest, as with "Deck Of Cards" in the 1963 charts, "Clap Your Hands" originally charted here on the 25/6/1960 reaching No 1, I don't if it charted in N.Z around the same time or not, Warwick (Was Was) might know, how ever I've noticed lately that what ever happens to be in the charts in N.Z. on a certain date it's usually similar to what is on the charts here around about the same time.

Regards

John.
Hi John. I'm not 100% sure how those charts were formed except to say they were following overseas trends, so, being similar to the Australian charts doesn't surprise me.
