During the early years of the Early Education Reform Group, the local ABC contacted the group and asked them to provide a speaker to talk about child development and school readiness.
Lil Gwyther as the Publicity Officer for EERG took on this task, and the first interview was conducted by 612 ABC in January 1983, to coincide with the start of the school year.
The interview had so much feedback from listeners that a regular weekly slot was arranged for Lil to speak on various topics about early childhood. Most of the sessions were taped on cassette, so the quality of the digitised versions presented here varies somewhat - but is quite adequate to listen to.
ABC radio presenters Janine Walker and Blair Edmunds conducted most of the interviews.
