Walkman world

Philip Seymour Hoffman’s 2009 music film “Pirate Radio” was adapted from a real story. In 1966, a yacht carrying a “pirate radio” that broadcasted music to the British 24 hours was torn into pieces by the sea, together with the group of young people who embraced their dreams, and the box of CDs they held at the last moment. .

Father and son, this is the immortal voice left by the “pirate radio” to the world. This story of innocence, idealism and a little romance reminds people of the radio station that fades out of sight.

In fact, radio stations have been synonymous with fashion and avant-garde in the 20th century.

The world’s first licensed radio station was the KDKA radio station in Pittsburgh, USA, which was launched in 1920. At that time, it was a trend for radio stations to play music. Not only rock music, jazz, country music, etc., they entered thousands of households through radio stations. The radio also guided people’s understanding of art life, including the entertainment status of entertainment companies such as Hollywood and Broadway. Establishment.

Hearing once ruled the world. The New York Times reported in the 100-year review in 2000 that driving to the radio is almost in common with all drivers around the world.

The Chinese generally use radios, which were already in the 1960s; in the 1970s, they reached a peak. The folks commonly called “three turns and one ring”, which is the radio.

The “Look at the World” audio section was launched on the WeChat public account.

At the beginning of reform and opening up, people eagerly pursued spiritual life, but literary creation has just come out of the trough, and the means of communication are limited. Radio has inserted the wings of sound for literary works, which has contributed to phenomenal events. For example, Lu Yao’s novel “Ordinary World”, which combines labor and love, frustration and pursuit, pain and joy, daily life and huge social conflicts, has a direct audience of 300 million.

At that time, there were no advertisements on the radio station, no Hong Kong and Taiwan, no artichokes, no text messages, no pop music, but a fixed entertainment program for the audience. The announcers who made people remember deeply became the stars of the time.

In addition to new sounds, the world has new text, new images, and even virtual spaces built into VR glasses. Even the most loyal audience of the radio, the driver, will be freed by the advent of unmanned technology, distracting attention, and no longer just listening to the radio to spend driving time.

Surprisingly, however, the wave of Internet radio is coming. We can listen to and subscribe to the program through the radio app in the phone. These programs may be run by government agencies or by individuals. Of course, they are all run by various platforms.
