ABC Extra’s worldwide radio-relay

ABC Extra is celebrating World Radio Day by being part of a European Broadcast Union organised radio-relay.

The relay will feature live radio broadcasts from many countries including: Sri Lanka, Germany, Maldives, Afganistan, China, Egypt, Egypt, Romania, Australia, Switzerland, India, Vietnam, Kyrgyzstan, Poland, Canada, Malta, Bangladesh, Armenia and others, as they hand over from one country to another as the timezones change.

ABC Extra will participate in the relay at 3:30pm AEDT on Friday 13th February for the world to hear. Listen here or on digital radio.

WRD was proclaimed by UNESCO in 2011 to celebrate radio as a medium, improve cooperation between broadcasters and to encourage major networks and community radio alike to promote access to information, freedom of expression and gender equality over the airwaves.

This year the theme for WRD is ‘Innovation and youth in radio’ and on February 13 participating broadcasters will devote half-an-hour of their programming to it.
