18 May, 1923, at 8:15 pm, the first ever regular radio program in the territory of then Czechoslovakia was launched.
Due to insufficient technical devices, spoken word as well as music was jammed by a constant tone aka spurious modulation. The young republic became after Great Britain the second European country with radio broadcasting. In three years time, the private company Radiojournal set up studios both in Czechia and Slovakia with the help of the state.
18 May, 2023, Slovak Radio is broadcasting as part of public Radio and Television Slovakia while the independent Czech Radio is celebrating the centenary of its broadcast. As a sign of respect and honour, we dedicate the report from the premises of Czech Radio to our colleagues from across the border. Our guide is Ian Willoughby, a senior editor and producer of Radio Prague, the Czech Radio foreign service.
