Response to Fond radio memories
I used to correspond very often with the British Section of Radio Moscow and on occasions with the World Service of RM. I believe the head of the British Secton correspondence department was a young lady called Elena Romanova. I even at times used to receive from Radio Moscow programme synopies. I had as matter of course Radio Moscow Schedules sent out every six months.I only turned off Radio Moscow when the dreadful perestrokia reached its counter-revolutionary conclusion.
Another station from the USSR was the "Radio Station Peace and Progress- the Voice of Soviet Public Opinion".This station seemed to broadcast at illregular hours of the day and night and would last for about half an hour. Was it the Soviet Peace Committee behind its operations?
Radio Berlin International had a weak signal unfortunately. They boardcast in the late afternoon. I could really only listen to it on Sundays. I remember "Hay - Mr.Postman" being as played as the signature tune of "The Post Bag Programme".RBI used to send out DDR booklets,"DDR Review" and a youth magazine "Contact". I got the impression that most of the RBI annoucners were expats by their accents.
Well Good Old Radio Tirana is a whole story to itself. Just to say it was in my top 4 radio stations from the socialist countries.
