UPDATE: The links to Cold War Radio Radio Vignettes below became inactive just prior to publication. I’m working with the author to post the articles here on the SWLing Post in the near future. Please stay tuned!
Cummings is the author of Cold War Radio: The Dangerous History of American Broadcasting in Europe, 1950-1989 and Radio Free Europe’s “Crusade for Freedom” Rallying Americans Behind Cold War Broadcasting, 1950-1960.
Cumming’s blog is updated frequently and features many fascinating historical “vignettes” regarding Cold War radio broadcasting.
Kim specifically mentioned a series of posts with a focus on Cold War American broadcasting from Greece, suggesting SWLing Post readers might enjoy this bit of Cold War history. I completely agree!
Below, I’ve linked to a total of six posts Cummings published on the topic. Enjoy:
