Even Click and Clack celebrate National Radio Day

It’s an obscure holiday, whose origin is likely less than 20 years old, and which we Radio Survivors only discovered last year–National Radio Day is Tuesday!

Brown Paper Tickets is celebrating the day with a lunch to bring together potential low-power FM license applicants in the Seattle area. If your Seattle-area group is considering going on the air with LPFM then you’d better sign up for this lunch, happening Tuesday at noon.

Publisher The History Company argues that a man named Clarence McKnight should be mentioned on National Radio Day. Not coincidentally, they published McKnight’s new book From Pigeons to Tweets, which is billed as “ a fascinating look into what we have now in radio communications, where we came from, and where we may be going.” The author, a retired Commanding General of the US Army’s Signal Corps, begins his story with how carrier pigeons were used as a backup to radio communications during the Korean War.

However you celebrate National Radio Day, make sure you turn on your radio and maybe raise a glass of your favorite beverage to your favorite radio personalities and pioneers. Also consider making a little contribution to our work supporting radio of all kinds here at Radio Survivor. Buy anything at Amazon using one of our links and we’ll get a few shekels without costing you an extra cent.
