John O'Hara and His Playboys was a Glasgow 1960s–70s pop group. The band had a successful career in Germany between 1962 and 1966. They toured widely in Germany, headlining at the Star Club in Hamburg several times, and sang with Barbara Murphy. O'Hara went on to play with British band The Californians. After the bands return to UK they supported various major American bands in concert and 1968-69 made eight TV appearances on ITV, Scottish Television, Teilifís Éireann, BBC1 and BBC2 including the Golden Shot. They were the first band to be given both halves of an episode of Colour Me Pop being filmed live in Sheffield for the first half of the programme and then recording the second half at the BBC.
