About Bang a Gong

Marc Bolan and T Rex once told us to Get it On, Bang a Gong.

Welcome to Bang a Gong‘s clips and song, album and artist info in celebration of the radio hits of the ’60s and ’70s in Australia. Our selections are based on the Kent charts (Australian Chart Book) and Kent Music Report, with many of them from 1966 to 1974 – more about that period HERE.  

This is a continually evolving site with new songs added frequently. We have only just scratched the surface so keep checking back. You can also Like our Facebook page or follow our Twitter account to ensure you don’t miss any.
