On this World Radio Day, Pawel Masarczyk takes a step back into the history of the medium that gathers us all here.
The phenomenon of the interval signals is known to anyone who has ever listened to international broadcasts on short, long and medium waves. The characteristic sounds and pieces of music announced the imminent start of programme for a broadcaster from any city in the world. Apart from ensuring the listeners that they have indeed tuned into the right frequency, they were also an excellent opportunity to showcase music that was most characteristic for the location of each station.
In the special edition of “Der Quellcode” let’s take a listen to the music that inspired some of the more iconic and lesser known tunes that accompanied the global connection between many remote spots on the map.
The world Radio Day also seems to be a good occasion to perform some radio-related experimentation in the show and see how far technology has evolved since the times of the first interval signals. This episode has been almost entirely produced using a mobile phone, give or take minor post-production work. Enjoy and a very happy World Radio Day to you.
