75 years of service
The radio station started out as the SABC's B-Service in 1937 and was known as the "Afrikaanse Diens van die SAUK" (Afrikaans Service of the SABC) for many years until it became known as "Radio Suid-Afrika" (Radio South Africa) in 1986. In the early 1990s, it changed its name to "Afrikaans Stereo" and then took on its slogan "Radio Sonder Grense", now known as RSG after the SABC radio restructuring in 1996.
