The Spanish Academy of Radio Arts and Sciences is a radio society of Spain
which is promoting the establishment of the World Radio Day by the UNESCO.
We would like to support the initiative of the Spanish Radio Academy to
propose to the UNESCO the founding of a "World Radio Day" within the
International Days UN calendar.
Since its launch more than a century ago, radio is free and accessible to
the majority of the world's population. Radio deserves a World Radio Day
tribute. Undoubtedly, this date will be celebrated by radio professionals
and millions of radio listeners around the world.
We are agreeable to celebrate the "World Radio Day" on every 30th of
October. This date coincides with the broadcasting of one of the most
relevant and well-known radio programmes in the history of radio, The War
of the Worlds. This radio drama was directed by Orson Welles and broadcast
by CBS on the 30th of October 1938 and since then, radio stations all over
the world have produced versions in their own languages.
