The history of radio in Australia began in 1919 when George Fisk of AWA (Amalgamated Wireless Australasia Limited) organized the first radio “broadcast”. It was a broadcast of the National Anthem from one building to another at the end of a lecture George Fisk given on the new medium to the Royal Society of NSW.
Then in 1929 the first radio licence in Australia was granted to Charles MacLurcan for station 2CM, which was broadcast from the Wentworth Hotel in Sydney, an establishment owned by the MacLurcan family. Broadcasts consisted of classical music concerts on air on Sunday nights.
From that time the radio industry in Australia has developed to what it is today – with more than 2000 FM, AM and DAB (Digital audio broadcasting) stations around the country.
