A 24 hour radio station to celebrate the work of the Children’s Radio Foundation will pop-up on World Radio Day, February 13th 2013.
A host of musicians, radio presenters and artists will come together at the Institute of Contemporary Art in London to appear on the station.

WRD Radio will be available online via tunein.com and Pure Connect, showcasing material produced by young people on the African continent.
WRD Radio broadcasts will come live from the ICA between 18:00 and 21:30 GMT. Presenters include Robin Lustig from the BBC World Service, and Hardeep Singh Kohli, Ed Stourton and Charlie Lee-Potter from BBC Radio 4. Music performances will come from Caribou, Fourtet and BBC Sound of 2013 artist, Laura Mvula.
