ABCF Ballarat are partnering with Ballarat Library to organise a book launch with Dr Phil Kafcaloudes who wrote an official history of Radio Australia: Australia Calling. The ABC Radio Australia Story.
Written by long-time ABC Radio Australia journalist and presenter Dr. Phil Kafcaloudes, Australia Calling tells the story of the radio service’s evolution and change through the decades as geopolitics and the media landscape shift across the region and the world. It charts the push and pull of the service from pressures on the ABC budget over the years and as political support for the value of international broadcasting has ebbed and flowed within Canberra.
Rochelle Kirkham of local ABC Ballarat radio will interview Phil and then facilitate the Q&A. 
We would welcome ABC Friends and supporters to this free event.
