Radio Cadena Agramonte continues in the heart of the people



Camagüey, June 9 - Since June 9, 1957, the people of Camagüey have had a station that has penetrated the hearts of thousands: Radio Cadena Agramonte.

This was a signal that was surprising due to the novelty of the sound and for having among the most attractive proposals its musical spaces, especially the discotheques and those dedicated to Mexican themes.

With the triumph of the Revolution and the creation in 1962 of the Cuban Institute of Broadcasting, Radio Cadena Agramonte became the provincial station of Camagüey. Its operation was reorganized and adequate profiles were created in the programming, which maintained the recreational message, but with new forms of education, guidance and information to the people.    

The emergence and evolution of this radio station, which has become an emblem of Camagüey, brings us the following report by the journalist Miozotis Fabelo Pinares: (Photos: by the author and Archive)
