National Radio Day is a celebration of the history of radio. Radio serves many people in many ways: on the community level, providing a voice and a platform for those who often struggle to be heard, on the local level, entertaining and informing when critical news breaks and on the national level, with a sense of immediacy and detail that other mediums can’t quite replicate.
On August 20th, there will be a celebration at the Seattle Central Library Plaza from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m that will include a pop up station. Seattle has plenty to celebrate – seven new low-power FM neighborhood radio stations. They’ll cover 90% of the city and be community resources, like The Seattle Public Library.
The Seattle Public Library has even come up with a reading list covering broadcast radio, HAM radio and more.
