National Radio Day is a chance to celebrate

Wednesday 21 August, 2019
National Radio Day in the USA is an opportunity to celebrate not only the advent of radio, but a chance to remember a favourite song, a famous speech, even shocking news that changed the world and how radio continues to play a huge role in national communication.
The day also marks the way radio changed the world when it arrived, opening the floodgates for advertising, the music industry, government transparency, real-time news, and opinion-sharing.
As part of National Radio Day, The National Today data science team surveyed 1,000 people about their radio-consuming habits.


 Even though it is not a 'national day' in Australia, some shows did use it to showcase and discuss radio. On ABC Sydney, Robbie and Wendy recalled old radio shows such as The Argonauts and Yes What with their audience. Listen to the show here.

The world wide, UN declared international day for radio, World Radio Day, is on February 13th.

The Radiodays Asia Conference is on next week in Kuala Lumpur. Full program here. Register here.
