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 http://www.southernfm.com.au/
