The Unstoppable Helen Meyer

Posted on: Tue 5 Dec 2023

When Helen Meyer (pictured left) entered Radio Adelaide in 2012 she little thought it was her path to a broadcast qualification and then thousands of interviews with the defence community. Service Voices was the brainchild of Fiona White and of Helen as Executive Producer. She delivered the program for 7 years on Radio Adelaide and then nationally on the Community Radio Network. Nicky Page (pictured right) is one of her Radio Adelaide colleagues and in this extended interview Helen tells much of her own story. It doesn’t mention that Helen was awarded the inaugural Oral History Excellence Award of the History Council of South Australia  and that her latest major project From 6TTU to Vietnaman Armoured personnel Carrier for Australia was a finalist in the national Community Broadcasting Awards. It does mention that she is now the oral historian for the Australian National Submarine Museum. Service Voices will end weekly broadcast on Radio Adelaide at the end of 2023 but all the stories are here. It will still be aired nationally on the CRN
