Archiving Australian radio: The Radio Antenna

The Radio Antenna, a website, founded by Andrew Kilpatrick, archives Australian radio airchecks dating back to the 60’s.

The site has all sorts of audio grabs from classic radio advertisements, jingles and competition calls to station promos.

Since 2012 it has collected thousands of sound bites, with help from broadcasters and the public. Andrew is always looking for more old airchecks to upload.

He is currently researching the history of Brisbane’s Triple M (also known as FM104) from the years 1980-1989 and needs your help to do so.

If you have any airchecks from Triple M between this period, or posters, lineup details and other information, please send them to to help Andrew research this topic and preserve Australia’s rich radio history.
