In second week of March 1994, youth radio station Hitz FM featured on every Melbourne TV news channel and newspaper. Petitions signed by listeners swelled to over 30,000.

Despite hopes for a last-minute reprieve, the station had to 'switch off' on the Saturday night. This is the final hour.

After 30 years, this recording is now available online for the first time.

Hear the Hitz crew play songs and farewell Melbourne. Hear a 'tired & emotional' Molly Meldrum appear onair to say some inspiring words. Hear the emotional last few seconds as the station goes to... silence.
