The Radio Antenna

The Radio Antenna is the only substantial website I know of that is dedicated to posting and discussing airchecks from Australian radio stations. It has built up an impressive collection since I started following it a couple of years ago.

Most of the recordings are from the 80s and beyond, and most of those are from commercial FM stations, but there are some older examples, of which I've listed three below.

The site also carries other radio-related content such as jingles and commercials, and it has a parallel Facebook page where the latest content is posted.
