With my ears I see, can your ears see anything?
With my eyes I can hear and your eyes, can they hear anything?
You notice that hearing is very special when you try not to hear something and simply listen away. Everything you have heard belongs to you, nobody can take it away from you, what you have heard remains in your memory and haunts your head like a catchy tune.

The same goes for the radio. Listening to the radio is a passion, while listening pictures appear in our heads, everyone can hear and experience music, stories, new and old, impressions about ways of life from all over the world, no matter at which time and in which place. From the North Pole to Mexico and from Popocatépetl to Kilimanjaro – the whole world appears before your inner eyes – all peoples with their special languages and music become visible through your ears for you and at the same time for many other people in other countries and on other continents. All over the world. Whoever listens to the radio, the whole world comes to visit.
And because radio is the first invention that has opened a window into the world for us humans, we love it.
