Today is UNESCO World Radio Day–a day to celebrate the continued relevance of radio in the twenty-first century.
And today, you, too, can make a difference with radio. Here’s how:
• Send a shortwave radio, care of us here at Ears To Our World. You can send one self-powered shortwave radio to a classroom or community in the third world for as little as $40. In impoverished regions still without internet access or electric power, your tax-deductible donation of one radio can inform and empower an entire community of listeners. Click here to donate one time or, if you like, monthly.
• If you’ve heard my 2013 recording for UNESCO regarding the relevance of radio, you may also like to visit World Radio Day’s webpage and hear what others have to say about the relevance of shortwave radio. Share this page with your friends.
• Contact your representative(s) and remind them of the continued importance of shortwave radio in today’s world. Click on the following links to search for your government representative(s) in the USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand.
