Welcome to the home of Australian Old Time Radio Shows

We would like to take you on a journey. A journey through time. Back to those glorious days when radio ruled the airwaves.


When instead of coming home to the flickering pictures of television shows, you came home to listen to Dad and Dave, When A Girl Marries, Bob Dyer, Jack Davey or one of the many series or plays with George Edwards, all brought to you via the Wireless .

Some of those names may be familiar to some of you, after all Jack and Bob were on Television , but many Actors, Writers, Producers, Directors etc who were household names and amongst our top Australian Celebrities of their time, have been completely forgotten.

The journey will be familiar to some, taking you back to days where we hope we will rekindle your memory of those glorious days. To others it may be a new experience, as we talk about the shows and people that made up The Golden Days of Australian Radio

We will do this by sight, sound and the written word. So as they say in the classics sit back,relax and most importantly enjoy

Rather than write off the project for 2011, I decided to make available a rather special recording from my collection, which is all about the ANZAC tradition more…


New Slideshows more added

We have added a new type of slideshow to this site for your enjoyment. We have access to many Radio Call radio magazines from 1937 through to 1956 Radio Call was the radio magazine for South Australia and like the Melbourne Listener In was very "pictorial". Though South Australian orientated the images and advertisements reflect the whole radio industry of the time
