From Friday 9th February until Friday 16th February, Magenta Radio will air a series of short clips created by UNESCO called 'World Radio Day Minutes'. These 1 minute long segments explain the origins of radio broadcasting, how it's been used in various industries and how it impacts people's lives, as well as celebrating all the unique facets radio has to offer. These will air at various times throughout the day. We're also open to collaboration with other stations around the world. Please email us at for more information.
