WORLD RADIO DAY 2017: RADIO IS YOU!

The World Radio Day is in its 6th year this Monday February 13, 2017.

UNESCO invites all radio stations and supporting organisations to celebrate radio and how it helps shape our lives!

No doubt,

“Radio is still the most dynamic, reactive and engaging medium there is, adapting to 21st century changes and offering new ways to interact and participate. Where social media and audience fragmentation can put us in media bubbles of like-minded people, radio is uniquely positioned to bring communities together and foster positive dialogue for change. By listening to its audiences and responding to their needs, radio provides the diversity of views and voices needed to address the challenges we all face.

Radio informs us and transforms us, through entertainment, information and audience participation.  Having a radio means you are never alone – you always have a friend in radio. “

To this effect we at Lokal FM are dedicating Monday February 13th’s online streaming to good ol’ radio featuring the biggest Naija Radio Hits, fans speaking about Radio’s impact on their lives, excerpts from Radio’s archives and other features related to #WorldRadioDay.

Do join us online as we celebrate with Radio Stations all over the world with the theme: “Radio Is You!”

My good friend Ekemini Joseph will also have a Live interactive feed on Facebook with the theme from 9am on Monday, please don’t miss it!

INTRODUCING LOKAL FM…

It’s been a long time coming.
Many spurts, stutters [still happening sef] but somehow against the grain I’ve started it and there’s a purpose behind this movement.
I’ve dreamed of “owning” my own station and while this is still on a borrowed platform, it allows me bring my experience and experimental tendencies with fewer restrictions or managerial hinderances.
Still, it’s expensive, time consuming and nerve wracking especially as I’m doing it all by my lonely.
Good friends have offered advice, skill and moral support where needed but now it goes beyond that.
I need funds to run it.
But I’m confident that will come.
First the vision…to be a leading aural source of informed entertainment [music, news, etc.] albeit in pidgin.
The Mission, is to showcase the best of Naija content to the world, highlighting triumphs in the arts and technology!
Summary:
“LokalFM is a pidgin variety station featuring informative entertainment targeted at Nigerian & African audiences at home & abroad.”
I even coined a format for it [PVR] Contemporary Pidgin Variety Radio.
I look forward to you joining me on this journey as artistes who need to be heard, tech gurus with stories to tell, service providers confident enough to advertise on this platform, trusting in its vision.
Lokal FM will also be a platform for aspiring radio talents embracing new technologies to improve their skills.
So, are you with me?

Listen to LOKAL FM!
