Reload after Popup Window

I have a webpage that makes playlists and I have the playlist page popup a page that allows me to add playlist.  When I finish, I want to click Finished and when the screen returns to the screen that activated the popup, I would like it to do a refresh to load the playlist just created.  All of it works except for the ability to reload.  

Does anyone know how I can do this?

    <div id="GAPLD">
        <input type="button" name="GAPL" id="GAPL" value="Add" onClick="newPopup('./APL.php')";/>
<script type="text/javascript">
    // Popup window code
    function newPopup(url) {
        popupWindow = window.open(url,'popUpWindow','height=110,width=400,left=400,top=300,resizable=no,scrollbars=no,toolbar=no,menubar=no,location=no,directories=no,status=no')

do this on the popup window:
<input type="button" value="Close this window" onclick="opener.location.reload(); self.close();">

Open in new window
