National Radio Day 2017

Reason to celebrate: August 20, 2017 is National Radio Day.

Radio Day

Before the net, many people rely upon the modest radio to provide their day-to-day dosage of information, amusement and vital weather updates. This was specifically true for bad or remote neighborhoods which didn't have accessibility to tv or various other methods of communication.

UNESCO officially announced the formation of Radio Day in 2011, after a tip put forward by Spain to celebrate this crucial means of communication. In some components of the world, radio still remains an important lifeline to the outdoors.

In remote farming communities in Australia, youngsters learn their school resolve radio. In bad communities in Africa, communities compile around the radio each night to sustain to date on national information and listen to songs and speeches. Radio has been replaced by the web and satellite communications for large components of the globe, but also for millions of much less privileged people, radio is still a miracle of technology.
