Joe Brown

1960 - 1975


Joe Brown was a Dunedin promoter, best known for the Miss New Zealand contests. Joe Brown also ran a number of talent quests like "Search For The Stars' Quest". He established his own record label to release records by the stars he found. The majority of his releases were by John Hore and Eddie Low. The Joe Brown label was distributed by His Masterís Voice in the 1960s but moved to RCA in the 1970s after a brief spell of self-distribution.
