Home Pop Culture Fads Popswop


The weekly British pop magazine Popswop was first published in October 1972, primarily aimed at the teenage girl market.

In addition to full-colour posters of all the teenybop and glam heroes such as Bowie, Slade, Donny Osmond, Gary Glitter and The Sweet the magazine gave away 7″ flexidiscs, and iron-on t-shirt transfers.

Popswop merged with Record Mirror in September 1974 to become the catchily titled (!) Record & Popswop Mirror but ‘standalone’ Popswop annuals continued to be published until December 1975.
