The Springbok Radio Preservation Society handed back their collection of archive material of Springbok Radio which was on the airwaves from 1950 - 1985 in South Africa.

During those days there was no archive, and the material would have been lost, if it had not been for efforts by people to preserve and collect that material.

Frans Erasmus has been instrumental in the Springbok Radio Preservation Society, and streamed a weekly update of material on the Internet.

The material is back in the SABC Radio Archives at the South African Broadcasting Corporation.
