      The RFE/RL Broadcast and Corporate Records are a rich and extraordinary resource for the study of the Cold War through one of the leading organizations that fought it. As a conflict of ideas and ideologies, the Cold War was unique not for its muddy battlefields and the stench of dead bodies so much as for the culture wars it inaugurated by broadcasting decadent Western music. Radio Free Europe had been broadcasting into Hungary since its creation in RFE was created in part by the United States CIA along with other nations in Western Europe who feared the spread of Communism. It was created to broadcast unbiased news.

      The Communist regime and its institutions developed a real “fighting campaign” against Western broadcasts (Voice of America, RFE/RL, BBC, Deutsche Welle, Radio France, Radio Vaticana, etc.). However, the citizens of Moldova used the opportunity to listen to these broadcasts as an alternative source of information. WASHINGTON (AP) _ The Soviet Union on Tuesday stopped jamming Radio Liberty broadcasts for the first time in 38 years, officials said today, as thousands of jamming transmitters blocking most Western broadcasts into the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe were silenced.

        "With the emergence of relatively free media institutions, people aren't as dependent on Western broadcast," said David Morton, head of the B.B.C.'s Russian service, which has an estimated   By , shortwave broadcasts were being transmitted 24 hours a day in twelve different languages. However, Germany was not immune from radio broadcasts from abroad and this proved a real issue for Goebbels in World War Two. Radio transmitters throughout Eastern and Western Europe had been destroyed but this was not so in London.

Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) is a United States government-funded organization that broadcasts and reports news, information and analysis to countries in Eastern Europe, Central Asia and the Middle East where it says that "the free flow of information is either banned by government authorities or not fully developed".

RFE/RL is a (c)(3) corporation. Rock music played a role in subverting the political order of the Soviet Union and its attraction of the unique form of music served to undermine Soviet authority by humanizing the West, helped alienate a generation from the political system, and sparked a youth revolution.

In fact, the BBC World Service no longer beams programming via shortwave to the Americas or most of Europe. “There has been a massive decline in shortwave listenership, especially in Europe and North America,” said Andy Sennitt. International diplomacy and a changing global economy did not bring about the fall of the Iron Curtain.

Radio did, and it was mightier than the sword. Based on first-hand interviews and documents from the Central Committee of the Soviet Communist Party, Michael Nelson shows that Western radio -- principally, the British Broadcasting Corporation, Radio Free Europe.

Shortwave Radio Listening-- listen to the World on a radio, wherever you might ave Radio is similar to the local AM Broadcast Band on Mediumwave (MW) that you can hear on a regular "AM Radio" receiver, except that shortwave signals travel globally, depending on the time of day, time of year, and space weather conditions.

A strength of the book is Nelson's consistent attention to the reception of western broadcasts in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union. He mines Russian, British, and American sources to measure how many people were actually tuning in.

Book Description: The book examines the role of Western broadcasting to the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe during the Cold War, with a focus on Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty. It includes chapters by radio veterans and by scholars who have conducted research on the subject in once-secret Soviet bloc archives and in Western records.

This e-Dossier contains translations of documents from Central/East European and Soviet archives concerning Western broadcasting during the Cold War. The documents show that the Communist regimes perceived "enemy" broadcasts as a serious threat to the systems they ruled and were prepared to take extensive countermeasures to limit the impact of the broadcasts.

Radio jamming is the deliberate jamming, blocking or interference with authorized wireless communications. In the United States, radio jamming devices (known as "jammers") are illegal and their use can result in large fines.

In some cases jammers work by the transmission of radio signals that disrupt communications by decreasing the signal-to-noise ratio. However, Western media – especially radio broadcasts – were frequently tuned in to by the population of Eastern Europe, even though these broadcasts were often jammed by the state, it became increasingly more difficult to enforce this, and many people found ways to watch or listen to Western media, especially in the German Democratic.

While discussing his findings, Parta estimated peak East bloc audiences to Western broadcasts from to with overall listening oscillating around 25% of the entire adult population.

Parta reported that Voice of America (VOA) was the leading broadcaster to the USSR from towith the BBC in second. Journalists working for Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty cherry-picked interviews with recent defectors or accepted unsubstantiated rumors as fact.

Because travel to Eastern Europe was difficult in the s, for example, RFE set up information bureaus in cities across Western Europe, and paid for reports based on interviews with recent exiles.

The Cold War Broadcast That Gave East German Dissidents A Voice: Parallels In the final years before the Berlin Wall fell, East Germans described their grievances on cassette tapes that were.

The State Department decided to send a group of popular American jazz musicians to countries in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union to play Western jazz music and, by extension, to present a visual challenge to Soviet propaganda about racial tensions in the United States.The substantial communist efforts to jam VOA and other Western broadcasts attests to their perceived strategic significance.

CIA financed radio operations, such as Radio Free Europe, left a deep impression with the Eastern Europeans. Hixson demonstrates the impact of western broadcasts on the popular uprisings in East Germany and Hungary. Listening to foreign broadcasts is not new.
