On Saturday 5th October 1937, radio station 2PK, the ‘Voice of the Golden West’, made its on-air debut from a small studio in Clarinda Street, Parkes.
The station was a success and broadcast to local communities throughout the Central West, including Forbes, Peak Hill, Narromine, Wellington, Condobolin, Manildra and Molong.
To celebrate the 80-year milestone, 2PK is seeking past employees who graced the station’s studios to send in a special birthday greeting. To take part in the 80 year celebrations, 2PK is welcoming a quick recording from past employees including name, time at 2PK, and short birthday wishes. 2PK also welcomes any other relevant audio in reference to the station.
