Radio Moscow and the Western Hemisphere

Various Artists COOK05050

An ambitious project to compile "a digest of current Russian comment[ary]," this recording draws together excerpts of propaganda purportedly broadcast on Radio Moscow (we're promised an "all authentic shortwave recorded direct from Moscow"). These excerpts, out of context in their brevity and interpolation, cover a broad spectrum of topics including religion, segregation, the police state and US imperialism; all fall under the general heading of the Cold War. One radio voice assures us, "Yes, my friends, there are crackpots and malcontents in every society." All commentary is in English.
