#WorldRadioDay is a celebration of tech and information


Technology has been a vital aspect of communication and radio has proven to be one of the most powerful tools of media communication and we are grateful that we have radio sets.

Radio coined from the Latin word “radius”, meaning “spoke of a wheel, beam of light, ray”. It was first applied to communications in 1881 when, at the suggestion of French scientist Ernest MercadierAlexander Graham Bell adopted “radiophone”, but this invention was not generally accepted by the consumer world.

Inventors of this awesome tool of communication are based on speculations but based on Wikipedia Guglielmo Marconi and Reginald Aubrey Fessenden both invented the device that has spanned historical aspects of our lives… We all have that Grandfather that had that old Gramophone that he uses to pass time daily.

Well, today is #worldradioday and Twitter users have come all out to support this medium of communication. Here are some amazing tweets we have gathered on the subject.

Radio has become a part of our lives and it is one tech item that has journeyed through generations, today it goes beyond what my Grandfather used to need it for to a more hip element of entertainment.

All the functions of radio has been listed by the UN and it is just amazing that we do not have to go back and forth on.



We celebrate with all On Air Personalities and radio stations around the world for their contribution to the development of our information and technological space.

We celebrate mobile brands that have also taken wide leaps to add, radio systems on their devices.
