Following up from the original Shortwave America article on World Radio Day, we proudly announce this development:
UNESCO stands for the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization. World Radio Day has indeed come and gone, but Shortwave America wanted to bring all of you a piece that no one else even thought of. As of World Radio Day on February 13th, 2012, several milestones had been made in both the amateur radio AND shortwave broadcast worlds.
With the gracious permission of the awesome people at Amateur Radio Newsline, Radio Canada International, PCJ / Media Network Plus, The RAIN Report, ABC Radio Australia and their 360 Documentaries Program Director, Ms. Claudia Taranto, Shortwave America brings you full coverage of WORLD RADIO DAY all in one place!
Special coverage of World Radio day from ABC Radio Australia's 360 Documentaries gives us a special look at the work and contributions of Tony Barrell. Tony was a prolific and gifted person at ABC Radio Australia who unfortunately passed away last year, and they have set up a special TRIBUTE PAGE for Tony.
There are going to be two versions of this show: One for The Look 24/7, and one especially for Shortwave America fans who don't get to listen to the show on Friday evenings. The independent Shortwave America version of the show will be around or just over 2 or 3 hours long. As this is a special show, and coverage from all over the world is being put all in one place, that accounts for the long show time.
