So why honour the medium of radio with its own day?
In a world where social media commands the attention of content makers and consumers alike, it’s a tough media market out there. Although it may feel like there is a glut of information to absorb in the Western world, for some third world nations, online access to social media is not an option.

Union Aid Abroad-APHEDA is an organisation that is putting resources in to developing countries to help them access and produce radio.
To talk about a few of their different radio projects, Tim Brunero spoke with the International Program Manager for Union Aid Abroad – APHEDA, Ken Davis.[audio https://radioadelaidebreakfast.files.wordpress.com/2012/02/1402_world-radio-day.mp3]
