"Radio is a platform where you are allowed to create your art," presenter Danny Painter says.


Painter believes radio should be celebrated more often


This year marks the 8th World Radio Day, which is meant to celebrate radio as a powerful and influential medium that has been in existence for over 80 years.


 "World Radio Day highlights the importance of communicating with one another," the technical team’s Maxwell Motloung reckons.


Even the station’s bean counters agree.


 "Radio is important as it reaches the wider masses," the finance department’s Nkamo Mpakanyane says.


Despite the myriad of technological advances and an array of entertainment options, radio is still seen as personal, dynamic, adaptable and relevant.


The station’s senior digital content producer Mathaba Khalanyane says: “Radio should be celebrated as it goes a long way to communicate and educate people in the form of sound."
