This podcast is THE NIGHT THE SKY FELL IN recorded the night the skylab crashed. As you will hear people were ringing in to report bright lights in the sky and loud noises but the experts on the ABC were saying that they must be mistaken as the skylab was going to fall safely at sea. Any one who has been to the skylab museum at Esperence in Western Australia can plainly see that a lot of big and heavy stuff did actually fall on the land.

Recordings of Aus hams in the 1940's,Gee they sound like a lot of gerryatrics but the fact is they were young men then. It was just the way people talked at that time (Righto old boy!). I like the bit where the guy says he has worked the band since 1928. Also interesting to hear what their rigs sounded like then. Includes an intorduction from Ivor MOrgan who made the recordings at the start of the file.
