Radio Free Europe

Calling All In Transit


The lyrics are as follows:

Decide yourself if radio’s gonna stay.
Reason: it could polish up the grey.
Put that, put that, put that up your wall.
That this isn’t country at all.

Raving station, decide yourself…
Calling all in transit! Calling all in transit!
Radio Free Europe, radio.

Decide defying media too fast.
Instead of pushing palaces to fall.
Put that, put that, put that before- all.
That this isn’t fortunate at all.

Raving station, decide yourself…
Calling all in transit! Calling all in transit!
Radio Free Europe, radio.

Decide yourself, calling all of the media’s too fast.

Keep me out of country in the word.
Disappoint is into us absurd.

Straight off the boat, where to go?
Calling all in transit! Calling all in transit!
Radio Free Europe!
Radio Free Europe!
Calling all in transit! Calling all in transit!
Radio Free Europe!
Radio Free Europe!

I had just tune into the classic station when they were playing this song and it occurs to me to see what Radio Free Europe is doing these days. And frankly, things are not looking good for the historical radio station.

Since the end of the Cold War, the budget from the US Congress is getting cut every year. RFE had to move to Prague in an effort to cut costs.

However with new Russian aggression against Georgia and threating places like Poland, we need a Radio Free Europe now more than ever. This is because most people in western Europe do not have the internet. Most people still get their news from the TV or radio.

So it is with great honor, that I want to start the grass-roots effort in order to get more funding for the historical radio network, in order to provide free news to the Caucasus and “elsewhere a free press is either banned by the government or not fully established”. Write, call, or email your congressmen and tell them that you support Radio Free Europe! Spread the word!!
