Share This Post

Radio stations worldwide join together to mark International Human Rights Day, on the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Broadcaster, writer and agitator Gemma Cairney brings together a unique collection of presenters, audio makers, activists, sound recordists, storytellers and musicians, for a mixture of conversation, reflection, provocation and music.

This one-off emergency broadcast event runs from 12 midday UTC on Saturday 9th December, to 12 midday UTC on Sunday 10th December 2023. BCfm Radio will join the broadcast for 6 hours from Saturday at midnight to the early hours of Sunday morning.

It explores the meaning of peace at a time when the concept feels increasingly distant; bringing together voices from around the globe, including Australia, Uruguay, UK, Sudan, Japan, Palestine, DR Congo, Ukraine, Croatia, China and more.

A collaboration between a range of producers around the world, Peace Frequencies will present a
remarkable, multifaceted feat of programming, with a mixture of live and pre-recorded shows and
interventions that explore the subject of peace in a way that only audio can. Expect human stories,
incredible music, live conversation, immersive sound and much more.

Gemma says “I felt an urgent need to respond to ongoing conflict and atrocities – by bringing together
thoughtful reflections which confirm our collective humanity. The live-magic of radio and its global reach felt like a direct, active way to explore that.”

Patrick Hart, BCfm CEO said “Peace Frequencies is where music and conversation will bridge continents. Join us on BCfm Radio for a global connection that’s all about unity, understanding, and turning dreams of peace into a worldwide reality.”

The broadcast aims to take over as many radio stations as possible round the world; listeners can tune in via https://linktr.ee/peacefrequencies and choose their preferred station, including BCfm Radio in England, EHFM in Scotland, USMA Radio in San Marino, Aristocrats in Ukraine and many more.
