University of Adelaide Student Radio

A brief history of the Radio Adelaide logos (and that’s not even all of them!). It is a myth that student radio at The University of Adelaide started in 1972 – in fact, 5UV, the title station, was owned and operated by the university, not the student union. It mostly broadcast academic material and access programs from various community groups. Student radio didn’t hit the Adelaide airwaves until 1974 with the pioneering Tim Potter and Kym Goldsworthy’s “Lead Balloon Show”. Since then student radio at Radio Adelaide had quite the history, with some of the most interesting innovations in student radio in Australia. It is a real pleasure to have Radio Adelaide as the focus of the current stage of my research.
