World Radio Day

Surrounded by the numerous gadgets and digital machines, the applications conferring access to all our favorite songs with a single touch, we have somewhere forgotten the entity that was dear to us, a few days back, when none of these existed, yes you guessed it right, it is indeed, Radio!

To celebrate the existence of this great creation, World Radio Day is commemorated around the globe on 13th February every year.

The first World Radio Day was officially celebrated in 2012.

For the first 50 years after its invention, the radio was practically a piece of furniture. Households gathered around wooden equipment, which used an enormous quantity of energy and was too fragile to be taken around because of the delicate vacuum tubes inside.

It was only in 1954 when the radio shifted into people’s hands.

Despite being over 100 years old, the radio is one of the most prominent ways to disseminate information, provide social interaction, and educate communities all over the world. It has been utilized to assist people, including youngsters, to engage in conversations on subjects that influence them. It can conserve lives during biological or human-made disasters, and it provides journalists a forum to broadcast facts and present their stories.

Each year the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) commemorates World Radio Day by scheduling recreations with announcers, associations, and communities around the world.

The transistor radio has not entirely vanished from view in this gadget-proliferated 21st century. It dwells on today, even in the smartphone era, as a pocket-friendly device for those who simply love to listen to music, news, or sport in the garden, on the bus, or even at the stadium without the burden of cables or a hard-to-find mobile signal.
