Flinders Uni Radio

Grand old time trolling through old copies of Empire Times – this series was 1993, just before the student union FUSA broadcast o 101.5fm in 1996. Evidence suggests Flinders Uni students officially broadcast on Radio Adelaide’s student radio programs as early as 1986, alongside Adelaide University Union at The University of Adelaide. Names used to broadcast included Flindersradio, FUR Radio, FLO Radio. Big thank you to the State Library of South Australia and Flinders University Library for access to these records. That is, two plane rides, an Airbnb in Unley and 5 days of non stop, painstaking research. If my eyes don’t fall out first, I look forward to publishing this chapter!



Empire Times, volume 25, 1993
