Space Station Melbourne - Introduction & Tour

Melbourne's own space radio show, The Space Show on 88.3 Southern FM, has been broadcasting local, regional and global space news for 23 years. The show is operated by the Space Association of Australia and goes to air every Wednesday night between 7 and 8 PM on Southern FM, a community radio station located in Mentone.

On Saturday afternoon, we plan to meet at The Corner Store cafe, where the show's producer and presenter Andrew Rennie will talk about how the show is produced and delivered and then, at 2 PM, we'll all walk up the street (400M) to the studios at 22 Balcombe Road, for a tour and look behind the scenes to see how it all works. You may even want to get involved!

The Space Show is always looking for reporters, presenters, program producers and panel operators. If you have an interest in space activities (technical, commercial, political, etc) and would like to research, produce and/or present on radio, this would be a wonderful opportunity. Or, just come along a meet some new people!

If you can't make it, you can always listen in each week on 88.3 FM or online at

    Invitation to The Space Show
    As a follow up to the Southern FM studio tour last Saturday, we would now like to extend an invitation for you to come along and see The Space Show go to air. You can even participate if you'd like. You could simply read a couple of lines of the news on air, read a full news story, operate the panel (with assistance) or anything else that may take your interest!

    The show goes to air at 7PM each Wednesday evening from the studios at 22 Balcombe Rd, Mentone. If you are interested in coming down this (or any Wednesday) let me know by email ([masked]), call the Producer (Andrew Rennie) on[masked] or go to the studio around 6:30 pm and introduce yourself!

    We had a very pleasurable afternoon, kicking off at the Corner Store with some coffee and good conversation. We welcomed a brand new member, Roo to her first MSN meetup. Andrew gave us a comprehensive history of Southern FM and The Space Show. We then went over to the studios and received a detailed overview of how the station works and how the show is planned and produced. Fascinating and enjoyable afternoon and we may even have some new voices on the air soon, stand by!
    Thanks Andrew and everyone that made it on the day.
