World radio day – February 10

unesco_wrd_logo

Someone took it upon good authority to dedicate one of the 365.242 days of the year to one of the greatest inventions and methods of communicating.

In 2010 the Spanish Envoy to the ¬†United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation stood up and asked, “Why don’t we have a day of the year dedicated to the radio?”

Damn good question if you ask me!

So in 2012 we celebrated our very first, World Radio Day.

Now I know that I’m very biased towards this topic but I say finally, some smart Alec decided to make a day for radios!

This is the story behind the creation of World Radio Day and why it is important to have it on our calendar.
