Happy World Radio Day!

Sending its love a day before Valentine's, February 13, 2011 has been declared the first annual World Radio Day by UNESCO (United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization).

To celebrate you could visit the website, which includes 15 ways to celebrate (including helping spread the just-launched Community Media: A good practice handbook) and 10 quotes about radio, like this one from Canadian media theorist Marshall McLuchlan: “Radio affects most intimately, person-to-person, offering a world of unspoken communication between writer-speaker and the listener”.

Or you could listen to/play/broadcast the NCRA's commemoratory, exclamatory, public service announcement in English and French!
