Summary The twenty years preceding the arrival of television are usually described as the 'Golden Years' of Australian radio broadcasting. It was the time of 'Mo', the beginning of June Salter's career, and when such stars as Peter Finch, John Meillon and Queenie Ashton graced the airwaves. It was a period of unique activity, and Richard Lane has provided biographies of the principal actors, writers and producers who worked in radio drama in Australia from the beginning of public broadcasting in this country up to the early years of television
