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.
