Each year on August 20th, National Radio Day recognizes the great invention of the radio. It is but one day to acknowledge how public radio stations, FM outlets and community radio organizations are intended to get cities and towns buzzing about the importance of radio.
Radio's presence is undeniably solid - from transmitting information, to broadcasting music, and even serving as a way of transmitting stories. Radio is pretty cool! You can listen to the latest and greatest in music, to old school and flashback, to your favorite on-air DJs and to the latest news around the city.
Radio is one of the oldest forms of electronic media and it's still popular today. It was invented in the late 19th century and broadcasting stations began airing programs in the 1920's.
Here are few photos from our station:
With so many things to love, why wouldn't we celebrate it?
Everyone wants to know: What are Rihanna and Glover up to?
Donald Glover's had a pretty damn good run for the last year or so: Grammys, Emmys, Golden Globes, Star Wars, etc. The only thing missing? How about a collaboration with Rihanna?
A photo posted on Twitter today has brought tons of fan speculation — a movie or a music video. The post was captioned “on set in Cuba,” and it’s thought the rumored film project will be a musical.

“It’s falling for someone and knowing that you’re inches away from love. It either has a happy ending, or no ending at all,” Sabrina tells in a recent interview with Philippine Daily Inquirer.
“It was very easy to write because in these young years of our lives they always say you lose people along the way, sometimes for no reason other than they were meant to teach you a lesson, and some of those are definitely ‘almost lovers,’” she adds.
Moreover, Sabrina Carpenter is set to take the spotlight this August for a series of tours in the Philippines.
