So after my previous thred about the Israeli charts in the early days of the Reshet Gimmel era (1976-1979, here's a link- https://www.ukmix.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=126486
), I want to go even further back in time, back when it was called Hagal Hakal ("The easy wave). The chart was established in the early 60's and was published in an inconsistent basis. After a break of about a year, it returned for good in 16.3.1969. At first, the full charts I had were few, from old scans of Lahiton I found on the web. But then, I joined a website called Pizmonet (which was a website about the history of the Hebrew singles chart). I got editing permissions and started adding a section about the international chart, and the owner gave me tons of charts from Lahiton! now I have a lot of material for a thread about the older days of the Israeli chart.
