Celebrate World Radio Day with Stylish Radios from Currys

Proclaimed in 2011 by the Member States of UNESCO and adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2012 as an International Day, February 13 has now became World Radio Day!

World Radio Day celebrates the radio as a way of educating people, providing information and promoting freedom of expression across the world! Radio also plays a crucial role in emergency communication and disaster relief. At the global level, radio remains the most widely consumed medium. By listening to it's audiences and responding to their needs, radio services provide the diversity of views and voices needed to address the challenges we all face in the world today! In Ireland, A morse code transmission on 24 April 1916 from the GPO in Dublin by the rebels during the Easter Rising is considered the first broadcast in Ireland. Regular radio broadcasting in Ireland began with 2RN's test transmissions in 1925 (now RTE Radio 1). Commercial radio was only legalised in Ireland in 1989, and so Irish radio in the 80's was dominated by pirate stations which were unlicensed, illegal and hugely popular. Nowadays, there are many stations to choose from in Ireland, with over 3 million people here tuning into radio on a daily basis, according to the latest figures from JNLR. While many people choose to listen to radio on their phones, laptops or other devices, why not pick up a radio from Currys to celebrate World Radio Day and as an attractive addition to your home?
