Retro Radio Dial

A fascinating look back 25 years ago to 1988 and the radio stations that could be heard in Australia on FM has just been released by the Radio Heritage Foundation at

As well as a complete list of FM stations along the dial, the new feature includes the name of the radio station owners of that era, nearly all of which were local corporations and individuals in the days before mergers and acquisitions led to big changes in who controlled what Australians could listen to.

What's fascinating is how deserted the FM dial was just a quarter of a century ago. Some early ABC stations, the first community stations, and a handful of commercial stations. How many would you even remember today? Big changes since those days 25 years ago.

Retro Radio Dial Australian FM 1988-2013 is the latest of a new series exploring all Australian & US states in the coming months, as well as other parts of the world.

The feature includes the Top 20 music hits of 1988, popular movies and books and other aspects of popular culture that add to the flavor of the AM & FM radio dials of the era.

The Retro Radio Dial series also includes features exploring radio as early as 1928 in California, Japan and Shanghai in 1941, Hawaii in 1961, Idaho and Texas in 1963, ACT/NSW, Victoria/Tasmania, Queensland, SA/NT & WA in Australia in 1988 .................... many new titles are currently in preparation.
