About 80 Years of Existence - The Romanian Radio Broadcasting Society

"ATTENTION EVERYONE! YOU ARE LISTENING TO RADIO BUCHAREST! ..." These were the first words broadcast in Bucharest, on the evening of November 1st, 1928, at 9 PM sharp...

Names such as Margareta Marinescu, Puia Vasilescu Rebreanu, Aurora Balaceanu, Nadia Stefanescu, or Radu Vasilescu, are just some from the long list of the Romanian radiophony’s pioneers whose voice resounded in the tinny wooden boxes from Romanians´ houses at the time.
