SIBS "Pop Inn!" in 1960's Honiara

During the late 1960's, the Solomon Islands Broadcasting Service hosted a disc show called 'Pop Inn!' every Wednesday night at the Honiara Community Centre.

Interviews were also recorded with the audience, and the resulting show went to air the following night between 8.30-9.00pm over VQO 1030kHz mediumwave and VQO4 3995kHz shortwave.
