The Australasian Sound Recordings Association (ASRA) conference is being held next month in Sydney. The conference, which begins on 19th September, is themed Radio Waves: 90 Years of Radio Broadcasting in Australia. It will cover “Old, New & Next Wave” radio.
Australia’s first radio exhibition was held in Sydney in September 1922. While Wireless Telegraphy had been demonstrated by Marconi as far back as 1901, it wasn’t until the 1920s that the possibilities of radio broadcasting began to be realized, nowhere more so than in Australia. So, it seems appropriate to look back at how Broadcasting in Australia has evolved over 90 years and where it is heading.
As with all ASRA Conferences, it will include papers that explore changing listening habits, technologies and business models as well as key people and milestones.
