Radio Everyone will also feature a special segment titled Global Superheroes where iconic figures from around the world share amazing stories from everyday people. The station’s soundtrack will be composed by Peter Gabriel and the Soweto Gospel Choir.
Listeners around the world will be able to access Radio Everyone via an online stream on globalgoals.org and a collection of national radio stations. This will play a particularly important role in getting the message out to communities without other forms of media.
Broadcasters around the world are signing up to carry content provided by Radio Everyone from 26 September to 2 October 2015 with India’s largest FM station 92.7 BIG FM being the first radio station to sign-up in India. 92.7 BIG FM uses the power of radio to not only entertain listeners but also positively influence their lives.
