Radio Revolts 1: Meeting of Czech and German radio activists for the foundation of a Free Radio Prague  

 

Autumn 1917, radio was hardly known at that time, radio technology was serving the secret transmission of military messages. Nevertheless, the Russian revolutionaries already planned to establish a radio station. But this plan was not realized. Reason enough to return to this plan, in the city where the bolchevik movement made its official start, 100 years later.
