To help celebrate World Radio Day, the United Nations Postal Administration (UNPA) issued a series of stamps depicting scenes from the history of the United Nations Radio.
World Radio Day is observed on 13 February, which marks the day when the United Nations Radio was launched in 1946. Since its establishment, UN Radio has used its multilingual programmes carried by media outlets around the globe to tell the story of the international community's efforts to meet the challenges of building a better world.
The six stamps issued by UNPA have a special interactive feature. This special feature allows anyone using an iPhone, smart phone or tablet to download and launch the UN Radio app.
This special link unlocks the wonder of UN Radio, offering programming from around the globe, from classic broadcasts to current meetings, briefings and special events.
