On February 13th we will be celebrating only the second ever World Radio Day and Radio LaB 97.1fm have shown it’s support for the day with a special dedicated show which will air on the day with a repeat on Sunday.

World Radio Day was founded by UNESCO. They encourage all countries to celebrate the day by planning activities in partnership with regional, national and international broadcasters.

It was created to raise awareness about the importance of radio all over the world. How a cheap service designed to reach even the most remote of communities has developed into such a worldwide global phenomenon. Radio LaB will have interviews from radio stations all over the world as we celebrate how much of impact radio has on all of our lives.
