We’re proud to celebrate World Radio Day here at CKUA! Because we make radio and we’re in the world, every day. It makes sense! All of the words apply to us.
Celebrate #WorldRadioDay by listening to the radio and sharing how much it means to you! Here’s what others are saying about it on the internet:
Happy World Radio Day, especially to my friends at @ckuaradio @GrantStovel . This is our youngest, checking out my shortwave radio. I used to spend hours tuning in frequencies from all over the planet on this thing! pic.twitter.com/LrUNj9AerM

Happy #WorldRadioDay #WorldRadioDay2020 to my favourite radio station @ckuaradio. @GrantStovel is spinning great tunes this morningas always as I ride C-Train Red Line to work in #yyc . I love radio of all types because it gives the pulse of a community.

Radio. A medium I’ve loved and respected all my life. A powerful medium that connects millions across different races, creed and gender lines.

Guglielmo Marconi shared the 1909 Physics Prize for his “contributions to the development of wireless telegraphy”. In the late 1800s Marconi was able to use recently discovered radio waves to transmit signals across the English Channel, from Britain to France.#WorldRadioDay pic.twitter.com/Sl3OqBh5ZZ

Radio heads of the world, unite!
Radio is magic.
It’s an alchemical, metaphysical, transcendent medium with an almost incalculable ability to bring people together.
