To Radio with Love is a Curious Broadcast production made with the support of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland.
To Radio With Love is a radio documentary which consists of a series of audio 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 a poet. 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, Jane Rodgers, Keith Somerville, Rosemary Day, Pat Herbert, Tole Nyatta, Simon Maher, Theo Dorgan, Míchéal O’Muircheartaigh, Margaretta D’Arcy and Knut Aufermann.
