46 hours 30 minutes Lithuanian language radio programs produced by the South Australian Lithuanian community were first broadcast in March 1977 on University Radio 5UV. From January 1980 the broadcasts were made at 5EBI-FM. Mr Algi Grigonis was the chief technician for the weekly program from its inception until his death in March 1992. He made a copy of each program with the intention of presenting them to an appropriate repository in Lithuania. Before proceeding with this plan, his family – with the assistance of Mr Leonas Gerulaitis, President of the Lithuanian Radio Committee – chose a sample of the programs for the Mortlock Library to copy. The sample deliberately emphasises programs with a South Australian, rather than a national or international focus, and does not include broadcasts later than March 1990 when news direct from Lithuania reporting the emergent independence movement dominated programing.
