NATIONAL RADIO DAY

Each year on August 20, National Radio Day celebrates the great invention of the radio.

In the late 19th century, it became clear that wireless communication was possible.

There were several inventors that had a part in the invention of the radio in the late 1800′s and not just one person can be credited with it’s beginning. To make the radio a reality, it required a number of different inventions and discoveries including both transmission and reception methods as well as technology.

It was in the 1920′s when the first broadcast stations began airing programs.  These first programs were those of news and world events.

  •  Radio ownership grew from two out of five homes in 1931 to four out of five homes in 1938.
  • According to FCC statistics, at the end of 2012, there were more than 15,000 licensed broadcast radio stations in the U.S.

To celebrate National Radio Day, listen to your favorite radio station and give a special recognition to your local radio personalities.

Happy National Radio Day!

The Highway is usually what I have on too! Every once in a while I'll change it to '80's on 8

I have had Sirius for 15 months.....and haven't figured out the numbers for stations..... or how to 'dial' the numbers!   I hear there is a Bon Jovi station.... but can't find it.
