Two mostly on movies and entertainment oriented weeklies Rocky and Freizeit Magazin merged in October 1979 to a new weekly Rocky, das Freizeit Magazin. Two rock-oriented magazins, fortnightly Pop and monthly Popfoto merged in March 1980 to Pop/Popfoto. In June 1981 happened next merger of Rocky, das Freizeit Magazin and Pop/Popfoto. The result was a fortnightly (and later weekly) magazine Pop/Rocky, which was for many years Germany's second largest youth magazine. Discontinued in 1998. (kissfanshop)
