As we celebrate a birthday milestone ahead of World Radio Day 2016, taking place on February 13, look back and listen to some of the biggest moments in UN Radio history, in this audio slideshow put together by our colleagues at the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).

Nicki Chadwick, a familiar voice to many UN Radio listeners, tells the story.
