Hello and Happy Monday, bees! Let us be the first to wish you a Happy National Radio Day! We hope you are celebrating by jamming out to KALA and The Stinger, we certainly are!
Did you know that 20 years after the telephone was invented music was sent through a telephone line? According to didyouknow.com, that was when the radio was founded. That particular day was December 15, 1896.
National Radio Day gives us a chance to get together and celebrate the founding of the radio. Radio has changed drastically since 1896. Today, we receive our news, connect with strangers, and listen to our favorite bands.
National Radio day was created by Sabrina Roach, a doer at Brown Paper tickets. Roach created National Radio Day to help fund am and fm radio.
A national day like this can’t go uncelebrated. KALA had fun celebrating this weekend at The Black Business Expo and the Smooth Jazz Valentine’s Day Concert.
You too can join in on the fun! From 11:30-2:00 KALA hosts will be in the cafe with a photo booth and then in the beehive from 2:30-4:00. Come show your support for your fellow bees and join in for National Radio Day.
Show your support and tweet us at SAUmediaHive and tell us how you are going to celebrate National Radio Day!
However you choose to celebrate, we hope your day is filled with some of your favorite hits.
