Den 1 oktober var det den internationella Studentradiodagen (World College Radio Day) och trots att det går lite sisådär med en ”government shut-down” i USA just nu skickade självaste president Barack Obama ett brev till alla oss som firade World College Radio Day igår
“I send greetings to all those participating in World College Radio Day 2013. Since its beginnings, radio has played an important role in shaping the debates of the day and in bringing us together around the stories and songs that capture our attention. And for generations now, college radio has carried this tradition forward on campuses across America and around the world. By empowering students to add their voices and opinions to the airwaves and connecting listeners to new ideas and artists, college radio fosters creativity, promotes emerging musicians, and serves as a platform for students to engage with one another. Uniting audiences across languages and borders, World College Radio Day celebrates the students who power these stations and the unique role college radio plays across the globe. As you tune in on World College Radio Day 2013, I wish you all the best.”
Tack för din uppskattning Obama, vi på Studentradion 98,9 är glada att du gillar det vi gör!
