National Radio Day is celebrated on the 20th of August each year. There is no evidence to exactly know when this day was founded or who founded it but it is generally believed that it was started sometime in the 1990s.
It is also agreed that it was started by radio jockeys who felt that there should be a special day to honor this powerful means of communication. National Radio Day is not an officially endorsed national holiday, but it is however celebrated all over the country and is fast becoming a prominent national holiday, though not yet in an official avatar.
National Radio Day makes us realize that radio is not dead, after all. Most CD players and car stereos have radios included by default. In fact, there are so many 24 hour FM radio stations. While struggling through the rush-hour traffic in a car, the easiest thing to do to break the monotony is to tune into an FM radio station, and get entertainment without the hassle of having to do much manual searching.
There are even radio stations on the internet which serve a similar purpose. So this year on the 20th of August, get onto the radio waves with a radio and become a part of a celebration which is fast becoming a special day in the year. So what if it is not an official national holiday. But who knows how this holiday will take shape in time to come.
