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.

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.
