The main website of the Radio Heritage Foundation is now

Most content on this legacy website is no longer actively maintained and may not be up-to-date. It is preserved on-line purely for historical interest as part of the Radio Heritage Foundation’s digital collection.


You can make a difference. Your donations and gifts help us to carry out a wide range of radio heritage activities, in New Zealand, in Australia and around the Pacific. You don't have to be a member or volunteer to donate.

Funds go straight into the needs of projects such as the on-line virtual archives, the oral history period profiles, advocating for radio heritage issues, developing events and exhibitions, undertaking research, publishing and promotions, and building a network of radio heritage partners.

Radio Heritage Foundation projects and activities connect radio, popular culture, history and heritage.

The charitable trust has been giving a voice to those involved in radio via our website since 2004 and will continue to do so.

We are inclusive of all visitors, regardless of race, color, sex, age, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, or disability and aim to connect people of all ages and cultures who love radio

We welcome a sense of wonder from the joy of listening via radio, and from memories retold for the enjoyment of all generations.

We prefer to use environmentally sustainable goods and services where we can afford to, and we provide free community access worldwide to our collections, published research, preservation and promotion activities in a completely paper-free environment.
