World Radio Day, Tuesday 13 February 2024

On February 13th, people worldwide will celebrate World Radio Day 2024 | A Century Informing, Entertaining and Educating (closeup of a microphone in a shock mount, with an out-of-focus sound board in the background showing brighly lit indicators)World Radio Day. Whether you listen to it in your car, at home, on your mobile phones, at work, radio continues to play an essential part in everyday lives. We rely on it to learn what is happening in our communities, when disaster strikes, to educate us on important topics or to feel better connected to the world around us. And while radio is seeing some declines with station closures, it’s seeing a rise across sub-Saharan Africa, where rural people rely on it for their lives and livelihoods.

To celebrate, the NCRA-ANREC (stylized illustration of a hand holding an old-style microphone with a blue sunburst behind)NCRA/ANREC and Farm Radio International / Radios Rurales Internationales (illustration of a microphone with leaves at the base on a green background, text in a circle around it)FRI are partnering to get people to listen to the radio on February 13th. Whether it’s your favourite local radio station, campus radio, public broadcast, or a special program that will be streamed live that day, we want as many people as possible to tune in to show that audio continues to impact our everyday lives.

NCRA/ANREC and FRI will also partner with CKCU-FM to host a live broadcast, syndicated here on Radio Waterloo from 11:00am to 2:00pm. You will hear from broadcasters past and present and from around the world talking about the importance of radio.

“In Canada, campus, community and Indigenous not-for-profit radio reaches over 75% of Canadians, providing invaluable local news, information and entertainment in spaces where the local voice is often not heard. It fosters music growth, disseminating verifiable information with journalistic integrity and provides opportunities for organizations and companies to inform their community through a free-to-access medium,” says Barry Rooke, Executive Director for the NCRA/ANREC.

“In sub-Saharan Africa, radio is the world’s most accessible and popular communication service. When combined with mobile phones, which allow farmers to share their own stories on the airwaves, it brings lasting change for some of the world’s most vulnerable people—small-scale farmers in rural Africa,” says Kevin Perkins, Executive Director of Farm Radio International. “By sharing knowledge, amplifying farmers’ voices, and supporting better practices, audio has the power to reduce food insecurity, improve health and nutrition, and plant the seeds for long-term positive change.”

Last year, Farm Radio International directly reached an estimated 24.1 million people with life-changing audio services over the airwaves, enabling about 5 million to make a positive change.

This live broadcast will take place on Tuesday, 13 February 2024, at a morning event in downtown Ottawa, re-broadcast on CKMS-FM 102.7 Radio Waterloo from 11:00am to 2:00pm.

Fit to Eat: the NL Farm and Food Show

Many of us have devoted a significant amount of time to eating, and to talking and reading and thinking about eating. However, perhaps we have spent much less time thinking about where our food came from. Or who grew it or raised it or hunted it or collected it… or made it in a lab. But that may be changing.

Indeed, in these times, we are beginning to think more about food security, as we realize ever more clearly that in this province (NL) we are at the weakest link of the transportation chain – in an age of extreme weather and climate disruption. If we were not able to ship in food, we would not survive. We produce only around 10% of what we eat. Thus, without imports, we’d eat until about the end of the first week of February, and then we’d go hungry the rest of the year. That is not a good situation.

So it is time to talk about our food system, and the people who play a role in it.

A new weekly radio/podcast show hopes to contribute to that conversation. It is called Fit To Eat show logo (a sheep in a meadow looking in to the camera)Fit to Eat: the NL Farm and Food Show. It features conversations with farmers, processors, hunters, chefs, thinkers, innovators, homesteaders, researchers and eaters. And, to further lighten the tone, it includes music suggested by the interview guests.

Fit to Eat: the NL Farm and Food Show is hosted by Ivan Emke, is syndicated on Radio Waterloo from the NCRA’s !earshot Digital Distribution System. Fit to Eat is not currently on the CKMS-FM schedule.

Celt In A Twist

Producer Cal Koat is very pleased to bring the very latest, contemporary Celtic music to fresh ears. Says Cal, “It sure ain’t your Grand pappy’s fiddle music.” Celt In A Twist (black runic style lettering on a green background, with a triskel in the centre)Celt In A Twist spotlights the next generation Celtic fusions including everything from the Acid-Croft alchemy of Shooglenifty to the Highland- Metal of Mudmen. “You know, the original Celts wandered from the Asian subcontinent through North Africa to the Iberian peninsula and on to Scandinavia as well as the British Isles,” Cal explains, “so it’s not like you have to have lily white skin and bad teeth to feel a connection to it.”

“And the host couldn’t be a better fit for the program. Patricia Fraser has had her imagination fired and her cultural heartstrings plucked by this music. She’s a terrific communicator with a brilliant mind, who shares the listeners’ excitement as they discover these vibrant, underexposed sounds together.”

Celt In A Twist airs on CKMS-FM on Sundays from 6:00am to 7:00am.

She Is Your Neighbour

In 2019, Moving Beyond Violence (words around a blue circle with a silhouette of a dragonfly)She Is Your Neighbour was launched in the form of a blog series and social media campaign. Women’s Crisis Services of Waterloo Region (WSCWR) asked community leaders to share their perspectives on domestic violence and explain why they are invested in ending it. These community leaders became ambassadors of the She Is Your Neighbour project. Together, WCSWR and these leaders explored different types of abuse and challenged the misconception that domestic violence refers only to physical violence. Many ambassadors shared stories of emotional, psychological, and financial violence that they have witnessed or experienced.

In fall 2020, the She Is Your Neighbour podcast was released! In the podcast, WCSWR takes a deep dive into domestic violence. Through thought-provoking discussions WCSWR addresses hard topics like domestic violence and the drug trade, violence against Indigenous women and girls, challenges for transgender youth seeking support, and more.

Season Two was produced in 2021. Throughout this season, we build on topics we explored in Season One and fill in the blanks by covering new topic areas. Join us as we explore the realities and complexities of domestic violence.

Our goal is to increase awareness and understanding of domestic violence through thought-provoking discussions, highlighting groups who are disproportionately impacted. We all have a role to play in ending domestic violence.

She Is Your Neighbour is hosted by Jenna Mayne.

She Is Your Neighbour Seasons One and Two are not currently on the CKMS-FM schedule.
