National Radio Day
This is the Manager’s Minute.
August 20th is National Radio Day - a day set aside each year to reflect on how radio contributes to our lives.
Invented in the late 1800’s, radio originally was used for maritime and military communications.
Radio began going mainstream in the 1920’s – the first scheduled program aired in November 1920 and from there radio swept the country.
Recent research shows reasons people listen to radio include gaining information, learning something new, passing the time, entertainment, companionship and connection.
Why do you listen to radio, and how does KGOU contribute to your life?
As KGOU celebrates 50 years of service, we’d like to hear what draws you to radio.

Thanks for listening.
With the Manager’s Minute, I’m Dick Pryor.
