August 20: National Radio Day

On August 20, it’s time to turn on the radio and sing along to all the hits. Of course, if you’d rather, you can listen to the game, try to be caller #9, or get your news, weather, and traffic fix. You can even agree with or argue with a talk radio host, as long as you do it as loudly and as sarcastically as possible! (Bonus points if you do it while cruising the highway with the windows down!)

You can learn about radio and National Radio Day by checking out this NPR page (I still can’t believe Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers, are retiring!).

“Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth,
burst into jubilant song with music;
make music to the Lord with the harp,
with the harp and the sound of singing,
with trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn —
shout for joy before the Lord, the King.”

Psalm 98:4-6

    Spoken Word Productions in Kansas City MO. celebrates this day and many others with its “Golden Days of Radio”. We present many old favorites of the days before the advent of television. Remember “The Shadow”. “FIbber Magee and Molly”, Brylcream, Texaco and the like. If your in the Kansas City area contact us and by all means like us on Facebook Spoken Word Readers Theatre.

    • That’s great! Sadly, I’m a long, long way from Kansas City, although I do have fond memories of visiting family there when I was young. The Golden Days of Radio sure does sounds like fun though!
