NEWS OF THE WORLD - JULY 22, 1986

Printer-friendly version

"News of the World" was a series I put together as a celebration of shortwave radio and the many different voices that could be heard over that medium. This was the pilot episode, aired on Tuesday, July 22, 1986, and it features broadcasts from Kol Israel, Radio Prague (including the interval signal and famed broadcaster Hana), Radio Moscow (including the interval signal), and the Voice of Free China in Taiwan. (While this episode aired on WUSB, there were others that aired on WBAI. One of them is already in our "Off The Hook" archives for March 13, 1989, which was my second program on that station.)
