Documentary on Newstalk, Producer Patricia Baker celebrates the medium of the wireless in: To Radio With Love.

Every day in Ireland over three million people listen to the radio. As we go about our day, more often than not, it is the radio that informs, entertains and stimulates us.

Originally broadcast in 2014, To Radio With Love is a radio documentary which consists of a series of letters, a love letter if you will, written and then read out over the air by a diverse group of individuals ranging from radio presenters, development workers, and slum radio practitioners, to civil rights activists, artists and poets.

These audio letters tell the story of how radio helps build communities, gives a voice to local people, and shapes modern culture. A soundtrack of iconic radio broadcasts from around the globe accompanies the letters.

The contributors on To Radio With Love are: Joe Duffy, June Rodgers, Keith Somerville, Rosemary Day, Pat Herbert, Tole Nyatta, Simon Maher, Theo Dorgan, Míchéal O’Muircheartaigh, Margaretta D'Arcy and Knut Aufferman.

To Radio With Love is a Curious Broadcast production made with the support of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland.

Produced by: Patricia Baker and Myra Hayes
