Completely Overhauled and updated
Updated Saturday 2nd November 2013 at 4:35pm


Find all the links you need, to get your life into retro mode.  They are links to popular retro artists like Abba and Donna Summer.  Why not give your modern computer documents that 70's touch with some classic typewriter fonts.  Strike high in those old Intellivision Video Games.   If you're trying to find a rare album on CD, you'll find a number of links to record labels that specialise in re-issues.  Surf away and enjoy!!.

Resurrected from the past and completely overhauled, our retro links section has been reworked for the first time in around eight years.  I confess with all the work with the radio station, this part of the website has been awfully neglected.  All the old dead links have been removed, and the current links have been tested and are working beautifully. 

For keeping the integrity of our links up to scratch, we have chosen sites that we think offer maximum content with no advertising - at least the kind of ads that have scripts, and can contain viruses.  We have also decided that any sites that require a premium account for their access will also be removed and deleted, as the spirit of this section is to share.


Australian Compilation LPs  -  A Chronicle of Australia's Compilation History.


For those interested in getting somewhat nostalgic about the old compilations, or whether you wish to re-compile them using your current music collection, this excellent website is for you.  It carries most of Australia's chart compilations from the 60s 70s and 80s.  The scans of the album are of high resolution, and track and chart info is detailed.  Please note that they are no music downloads here - this site is for pure reference only.
