February 13 is celebrated around the world as World Radio Day. Today, when the world has become a global village, the news of every moment, reaches from one corner of the world to another in minutes. Where the Internet, social media and television channels have made their mark due to modern technology, the importance of radio has increased rather than decreased in the world today. Where in the past a radio set was needed to listen to the radio, today we can listen to program from the FM radio mobile set, due to which the number of radio listeners is increasing day by day.
The history of radio is very interesting. Radio was invented by Marconi in 1885, followed by an experimental station based on technology built by Fessenden in 1906. On November 2, 1920, Mr. Davis introduced the first Commercial Radio station, which ran programs for the presidential election. Thus in 1922, Radio developed rapidly and 576 Radio stations were established.
The British Broadcasting Company (BBC) began its transmission in 1922. It was a private company. The company was disbanded in 1926. The government later realized that it was a source of powerful communication, it was renamed the British Broadcasting Corporation in 1927. In World War II, the importance of radio increased among the people.
Similarly, radio has become a source of information, culture and entertainment for the masses and has become popular among the masses. But the revolutionary change in radio history came when the world shifted from AM (Amplitude Modulation) to FM (Frequency Modulation) in 1980.
FM Radio works primarily for the community. FM Radio station not only offers programs for the community but also provides information on community welfare, issues and regional issues. In short, FM Radio 's job is to highlight public issues and problems. FM Radio is even more important because it is listened by many people.
Community radio stations are non-profit organizations that offer programs tailored to the public's needs, including news, current affairs, social issues, and other community issues. Community radio around the world is supported by the state so that people can easily bring the issues of the region before the government agency in radio programs but also give their feedback on various schemes and projects run by the government. Today, sadly, many FM radios are only playing music.
