World Radio Day | The Power of Radio | Christina Rowsell

by Christina Rowsell

Today is World Radio Day. A day that sums up my last 27 years. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been on the radio for 27 years. I've told you my story before on how I got into radio. Read it HERE. But what I want to know is, what does radio mean to you?

Do you remember listening to the radio when you were a kid? Maybe it was a countdown show in the evening. You had your cassette ready to hit record once the radio announcer stopped talking – but yet they could talk until the first word in the song… how did they know how to do that you would ask.

It’s funny how radio changes in importance to you the older you get. From hearing your favourite song on the radio to it being a daily part of your life. Like when you’re driving to work and you’re listening to the hosts on the radio talk, just like they’re in your car having coffee with you. You feel like you’re a part of the conversation. You laugh out loud or even talk to the radio in your car – and realize you’re alone in your car carrying on a conversation with the radio station. Sometimes you’ll feel the urge to call in and share your story, or text them just to have your two bits. Sometimes you don’t and just listen to what everyone else has to say.

Then there’s that time when you need the radio to survive. Whether it’s there to keep you company while you work or while you’re driving. When you hear that song that either helps you through a tough situation, cheers your up or is the story of your life, Radio is there to help. Maybe you’re driving that lonely highway and the only one keeping you company is the person on the radio. Or… that time when there’s a state of emergency flood and you need to know what’s happening.

That’s what I love about radio. It’s the power of having a friend when you need it. The power of having music to lift you. And the power of knowing what’s happening now. Thank you for being here day in and day out.

Celebrating with you, happy World Radio Day!
