A radio is not a radio without hosts. For more than 100 years, the key purpose of radio is to communicate. It has its roots in the telegraph that was invented by Guglieno Marconi and patented in 1896.
The beginning of 20th century saw popular success of the radio in marine communication. It was used to send messages in Morse code either among ships or between ships and offshore stations. Among the most memorable uses was during the sinking of RMS Titanic in 1912. Since then, radio has been used for broadcasting information (news/traffic/weather/etc.), social and political propaganda, and, certainly, musical expression. All of which carry a shared core component, which is that radios transmit human connection.
Vox De Cultura has mentioned that radios used to broadcast local contents for local audience. Frequency range was limited then. Due to the birth of the internet, radio has been able to reach a broader audience. The coverage that was once local has become global. Streaming services have also been a popular choice to listen to music, so much so that many consider them as web radio. However, this should not change the main characteristic of radio, which is communication. We’re humans, not machines. It’s all about human connection.
Thus, this program ensures the presence of hosts to present a range of exciting programs, from a fun journey to the musical world, new attempts in music making over the years, a different kind of music chart, and many more. So be on the watch!
