World Radio Day special

February 13th, 2022 | by aobaoill |

Today (13 February) is World Radio Day, and we have a special episode to celebrate. It will air on Flirt FM (Galway, Ireland) today, as well as other stations worldwide. You can download it from the links here.

As usual, our WRD2022 show includes input from pupils at Galway Educate Together National School, along with contributions from KTWH in Minnesota (thanks Zak!), and Dianne Ballon. We share the One Free Press Coalition list of ’10 most urgent’ cases of radio journalists worldwide. We discuss the role of radio and media in nationhood and propaganda, and discuss internet safety and children. The show includes PSAs and announcements from UNESCO/World Radio Day, WHO (regarding COVID and misinformation), Media Literacy Ireland, and others.

You can download the show from our site (above), from the Radio4All syndication site, or from the Internet Archive.
