Springbok Radio was the first South African commercial station that operated from 1950 to 1985. The "Springbok Radio Preservation Society of South Africa", with the assistance of SABC, began work in 2008 to broadcast some of the station's older programs. As a result of this work, an online station was launched, Springbok Radio Revisited, which broadcasts restored programs.

    Springbok is a cool station!
  • Sihle
    Everything is cool, Springbok is a very interesting and pleasant station to promote oldies programs and music, which is not very popular and pleases the lack of advertising.
  • Theuns
    Accidentally found this Springbok station and got stuck, what great songs, thank you very much to my heart.
