International Radio Day

“Whew! What a party.” – what nobody said after International Radio Day on August 20th.

Yep, you missed it. No worries, seemingly everyone did.

There was barely a blink of a mention on twitter, except relief from one host who made it through another day without being pink-slipped.

Others were more blunt.

And then there was the vitriol.

So, International Radio Day comes and goes. Again. I didn’t do anything either. But it does seem like a wasted opportunity. A little like being sooo busy saving the true meaning of Christmas that December 25th comes and goes and you don’t notice.

I’m not sure what the answer is, but it seems to me that if there’s already a day carved in the calendars radio ought to do something with it. In fact, there are two days; World Radio Day is in February.

Maybe we can pick a spot to set up a 10×10 tent or have the world spin a wheel.

  1. I, for one, will be listening to the festivities for World Radio Day on TuneIn. They’ll probably be coming from another country since most US stations don’t have any budgets left to celebrate.

  2. ask us anything cbbc
