From Friday at 8:00 p.m. to midnight on Sunday, Radio Nacional will start a “live marathon” of 52 uninterrupted hours in which voices from different parts of the country will celebrate 102 years of Argentine radio broadcasting, whose national day is commemorated on the 27th of August.

“Throughout the 52 hours of transmission we will be able to enjoy the varied texture of the voices that give life to the air of Radio Nacional throughout our territory. There will be a record of the voices that made the radio, the music that filled the silences and the recorded testimonies of the events that marked these 102 years of history in our country,” the public broadcaster said in a statement.

In the “marathon”, as the initiative was called by Radio Nacional, all its stations will participate, including LRA36 Radio Nacional Arcángel San Gabriel from Base Esperanza in Argentine Antarctica.

The opening of the special transmission will be in charge of LRA 26 of Resistencia, Chaco. Meanwhile, the closure will correspond to Radio Nacional Gobernador Gregores, Santa Cruz.
