Radio Habana Cuba celebrated their 53rd Anniversary on 16 April 2014. To commemorate the event RHC sent an email highlighting the occasion. It featured a photograph of Fidel Castro and his revolutionaries in 1961. A message accompanied the photo.
Rosario Lafita Fernández, Head of Correspondence Dept., Radio Havana Cuba, wrote: "April 16th, 1961 is an extraordinarily significant date for our people. That day our Commander in Chief, Fidel Castro Ruz, proclaimed the Socialist Character of the Cuban Revolution; he also told the world about the existence of the “Experimental Shortwave “, founded officially, on May 1st of that year, with the name of Radio Havana Cuba.
"Let’s recall his words: '...Do they believe they’ll be able to hide it from the world?...Cuba already has a radio station, that is broadcasting for the entire Latin America; countless brothers in Latin America and throughout the world are listening to it.'
"That fire baptism has been a source of inspiration in these 53 years. Thanks
for the valuable collaboration you send to us."
Happy Anniversary Radio Habana Cuba!
