Radio Corporation Of New Zealand Ltd.

Radio Corporation Of New Zealand Ltd.

Profile:
Please use the branded label as the primary label and, if a company is required, use this for all NZ RCA and related releases before 1975.

The Radio Corporation of New Zealand began operations in 1928 when the company was formed by William Markov. It released the first entirely NZ made recording on its TANZA label in 1949, when it opened its pressing plant that year, to add to its studio complex in Wellington.

Radio Corporation of NZ picked the rights to the catalogue of RCA Victor and its related labels in 1956 and for many years the labels carried the "RCA-Radio Corporation of New Zealand" phrasing.

In 1958 the company was bought outright by GA Wooller & Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of the New Zealand Pye Ltd. company, later owner of Allied International Records Ltd.. It joined a group that also, until 1966, distributed Festival Records Pty. Ltd. in New Zealand.

The Radio Corporation of New Zealand Ltd. continued as a subsidiary of G.A. Wooller & Co. Ltd and then Allied International Records Ltd until PolyGram took over the Pye Group in NZ in the late 1970s, RCA having terminated its license with them and set up in NZ in 1975. It was struck off in 1980.
