History of Radio Commercials Day

The first person or the organization that started celebrating the day is still not found. Although Radio commercials are often seen as an annoyance as the listeners need to wait for the songs to play, they had been playing an important part for many people by providing employment. However, the day is observed to celebrate the anniversary of the first radio commercial broadcasted on August 28, 1922, on New York station, WEAF. The first radio commercial was aired for Queensboro Realty, an American estate agent. As to honor and remember this event, Radio Commercials’ holiday is being celebrated annually.

When someone loves you, the way they talk about you is different. You feel safe and comfortable.

I think that if I ever have kids, and they are upset, I won’t tell them that people are starving in China or anything like that because it wouldn’t change the fact that they were upset. And even if somebody else has it much worse, that doesn’t really change the fact that you have what you have.
