Radio Heritage Foundation Extends Coverage to Europe

Radio Heritage Foundation
Extends Coverage to Europe
_________________________

WELLINGTON [New Zealand]

The addition of major new European radio history content at its website [www.radioheritage.com] marks a move by the Radio Heritage Foundation to extend its coverage of radio heritage connections to Europe.

Chairman David Ricquish says ‘the borderless nature of radio waves has always made it inevitable that our focus would one day expand beyond our initial work in the Asia and Pacific region. In fact, our collections already have many materials relating to broadcasters based in Europe going back to the 1920’s. European broadcasters, their ideas, policies and cultures have had a major influence on Pacific broadcasting for decades.’

The new content covers individual station features, 44 European countries, almost 100 separately researched years of local European broadcasting, over 15 digitized early radio frequency guides and some 250 audio samples and images.

The material has a special focus on local European broadcasting history centered on mediumwave [AM] and longwave stations, events and personalities covering the entire 20th century and the first decade of the current period.

Mr Ricquish adds ‘Belgian based Herman Boel has collected together, with help from other European sources, a wonderful treasure trove of radio heritage material. Herman needed to spend more time on other projects so we are delighted to make sure his efforts and dedication are maintained and continue to be freely accessible to the community.’

There are many connections between European and Asia & Pacific radio heritage issues that can now be explored and showcased at www.radioheritage.com. These include the many European based shortwave broadcasters that are now fading from the airwaves but which have influenced several generations of audiences in the wider Pacific region. Amateur radio heritage connections with Europe are another area of immediate concern.

The Radio Heritage Foundation already has over 200 Asian and Pacific radio heritage features at www.radioheritage.com, hosts detailed radio guides such as the PAL Radio Guide series with thousands of stations covered on AM, Shortwave and FM, has researched and produced some 40 radio documentaries for Radio New Zealand International, and is the official World Radio TV Handbook country contributor for over 25 Pacific countries.
