Golden Days Radio is a Melbourne based radio station that supports the community and is run thanks to the help of volunteers.

 

Golden Days Radio has a music format that has broad appeal for people of any age who have an affection for and appreciation for the nostalgic sound of radio as it used to be from the 1930s into the 1960s.

 

Many listeners attracted to this type of sound also value the light classics, operetta, ballads and musical comedy and there is a place for these genres too, in the Golden Days’ range of musical styles.

 

Golden Days Radio history goes back to June 1990 when Dom Iacono, registered an expression of interest with the Australian Broadcasting Tribunal for a “special interest licence” catering to the needs of senior citizens.

 

Both men, together with Jack Burgesson, the then station engineer at 3SCB Moorabbin, formed a steering committee. By early 1992 membership stood at around 40 and an application was made for a test licence.
