UNESCO World Radio Day
World Radio Day marks the anniversary of the first broadcast by UN Radio back in 1946, transmitting its first call sign. “This is the United Nations calling the peoples of the world.” And that is exactly what has happened since. Radio has served a purposeful role in connecting people all over the world. It has served as the beacon of light in emergency situations, a well informed voice in sports, a point of discovery in music, an easily accessible source of current events, and a consistent companion making the mundane ever so slightly bearable.
