Limón radio station marks 70 years

Radio Casino in Limón is marking its 70 years of being on the air.

The station, which now is on 98.3 FM, began broadcasting right after World War II on Aug. 18, 1945. The station survived a fire in 1970 that destroyed its building.

The station calls itself the La Reina del Caribe and tries to mirror the unique traditions and culture of the Caribbean, it said in a release. Among other programming it broadcast a Roman Catholic Mass each Sunday.
