Radio Heritage – New Holiday Competition

‘Connecting popular culture, nostalgia and radio heritage across the Pacific’

It’s our 5th birthday, and the holiday season….
It’s time for another popular competition!!!!!!!!

Yes, we launched back on December 26 2004 and it’s now grown to rank almost in the top 1 million websites in the world…….and we’ve only scratched the surface, giving some free tastes of what connects popular culture, nostalgia and radio heritage.

Thanks for trusting us with your memories, stories, photographs, audio recordings, and memorabilia during this time….we have so much more we’ll share with you in 2010 as our resources allow.

Everything you find at is available for your free personal use. Our philosophy has always been to bring information and memories to you free of charge, unlike so many better resourced archives, collections and organizations…..and we will continue to do so in 2010……….

Before introducing our 5th birthday competition, I’d like to personally thank everyone who has helped us on our journey so far. There are business partners [Apex Car Rentals,, ProCopy and PCWIZ2U] and individuals all over the world who make this possible….donating memorabilia, ideas, time, and even small amounts of money towards our costs.

With tough economic times in 2009, our income will be struggling to reach the US$6000 we achieved last year, and this only covers about 33% of just our operating costs… I have a special request this holiday season, will you make a donation towards our operating costs so we can bring you even more memories, information and free content in 2010?

It’s possible to make donations using your VISA, Mastercard, Amex or Paypal account from the donation button at any page on It’s also possible to use major currencies, just change the drop down menu on the donate now button. Thanks so much.



But let’s move right along to our new competition……..

Question: How many minutes walk from the Pacific Ocean is Tema Beach Bungalow, the restored 1920’s heritage beach bungalow that is available for a South Pacific vacation in return for specific donations to the Radio Heritage Foundation?

Just look for the Tema Beach Bungalow photo on every page at and click through to find out the answer.

Send your email entry to with ‘Tema Beach Bungalow’ in the subject line to reach us no later than midnight January 24 2010 your local time and date. The judges decision will be final. The prize is a copy of the World Radio TV Handbook 2010.

For those of you not familiar with the WRTH, it’s ‘The World’s Most Comprehensive and Up-to-Date Guide to Broadcasting’ and the Radio Heritage Foundation is proud of its association with this book which is now in its 64th annual edition.

It’s our free contribution to keep Pacific radio heritage accurately recorded and another way of giving back to the radio community of listeners and broadcasters that supports us. It takes many hours of research, but we think the results are worth the effort.
