A follow-up on our World Radio Day programmes
We're still getting a lot of feedback and messages marking World Radio Day from listeners around the world.
Clearly, this year's UNESCO theme "Radio and Peace" has strung a cord with many of our listeners, who themselves engaged in spreading the message of hope and peace.
For instance, Jamir Ameel, president of Radio Romania International Online Visitors Club in Pakistan, wrote in saying "The importance of World Radio Day is that it helps people to understand the power of radio as a device that can unite the people, educate them". Our listener also enclosed the two postcards below.
Also from Pakistan, Malik Allah Bachaya Khokhar representing the Sungat Radio Listeners Club was the recipient of a special certificate bestowed to him in recognition of his contributing to this year's WRD theme as well for his interest in DX-ing. We are very happy to share it with you.
Rabi Sankar Bosu, who is the founder and president of New Horizon Radio Listeners' Club (NHRLC), an independent think-tank on global affairs, based in West Bengal, India, also wrote to congratulate RRI on its efforts to celebrate the 12th UNESCO World Radio Day in its programmes. "It's really encouraging to see that in these times of uncertainty, the leadership of RRI has affirmed radio's role in assisting to reduce tensions, preventing conflicts and fostering peace by acting as a tool for humanitarian communication", our listener writes, also enclosing the two cards below.
Also from India, Prithwiraj Purkayastha wrote in to say Happy World Radio Day 2023, sending us the card below.
And finally, Paul Jamet of France informed us about a very interesting initiative of a New York-based broadcast engineer meant to raise funds for war-torn Ukraine and also encourage radio listening. All the details in the link Paul enclosed.
A warm thank you to everyone who contributed to making this year's WRD celebration so successful!
