INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Radio is a form of technology for signaling or communicating using radio waves (Ellingson, 2016). Radio waves consist of electromagnetic waves of frequency between 30 hertz (Hz) and 300 gigahertz (GHz). These waves are produced by a transmitter which is an electronic device connected to an antenna which radiates the waves, and received by a radio receiver connected to another antenna. Radio has a wide coverage in modern technology, used in radio communication and other applications.

A radio program is a segment of content intended for broadcast on radio. It may be a one-time production or part of a periodically recurring series. A single program in a series is called an episode. Some radio programs include music shows, radio comedy, radio drama, news and current affairs. These radio programs play significant role in the propagation of cultural values. Cultural values are the fundamental principles and ideals which guides the way of life of the people in a given community. It is the Culture which gives meaning to the way of life for a group or society and guide their behavior.  Values consist of the beliefs of a person or social group which regulate their ways of life. Cultural values are the various customs that the people have transmitted from one generation to another generation. The study seeks to appraise the influence of Nigerian radio programmes on the cultural values on Nigerian youths. A case study of Invicta FM.
