The Golden Umbrella

In the early 1980's, several AM stations in northern NSW and SE Queensland [Australia] established a joint sales and marketing brand called 'The Golden Umbrella' and this colorful print ad appeared in trade magazines at the time.

The stations were: 4BC Brisbane, 4GG Gold Coast, 4SS Nambour, 4GR Toowoomba, 2LM Lismore and Radio 97 [2MW] Murwillumbah.

Radio Heritage Foundation projects and activities connect radio, popular culture, history and heritage.

The charitable trust has been giving a voice to those involved in radio via our website since 2004 and will continue to do so.

We are inclusive of all visitors, regardless of race, color, sex, age, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, or disability and aim to connect people of all ages and cultures who love radio

We welcome a sense of wonder from the joy of listening via radio, and from memories retold for the enjoyment of all generations.

We prefer to use environmentally sustainable goods and services where we can afford to, and we provide free community access worldwide to our collections, published research, preservation and promotion activities in a completely paper-free environment.
