This is Serbia Calling

In a previous blog, I discussed the impact of Radio Caroline, how it altered the status quo for British radio. Here, I wish to present to you a book which had a deep impact on me and inspired me to become involved with internet radio broadcasting. The book is ‘This is Serbia Calling’ by Matthew Collin. It is a factual account of the history of independent Belgrade radio station B92 during the Balkans conflict. During the nineties, Europe was engulfed by its worst conflict since the Second World War. The breakup of the former-Yugoslavia turned into an horrifically bloody ethnic conflict. Religion separated the ethnic groups of Yugoslavia and the dark aspects of humanity presented themselves to the inhabitants as Serbian and Bosnian orthodox christians fought with Croatian and Bosnian Roman Catholics and Bosnian / Kosovan Muslims. The religious divide went back to the times of the Ottoman Empire and had always been a simmering bowl of contention but during the communist years of Yugoslavia and the protection of the Soviet Union, somehow the population had remained glued together. Political upheavals led to a rise in nationalism during the early nineties and the fragile bonds broke, releasing the full fury of suppressed anger amongst the ethnic populations as they fought for power in the region. To read more about the conflict I highly recommend Tim Judah’s book ‘The Serbs’ which provides a detailed factual analysis of the ensuing war. ‘This is Serbia Calling’ is a case study of the remarkable work of independent radio station B92. It was run by youth and developed into an active resistance movement as the war progressed. During times of conflict the power of media becomes elevated. The history of warfare has been dotted by technological media movements. Propaganda is an essential part of warfare and masters of propaganda are usually in the boss seat during a conflict. Ideological dissemination is vital to all sides of the conflict. What B92 did was to use their radio station to express the youth’s anger with the horrific happenings in their nation. It was a station which transcended the ethnic divides that were ruining Yugoslavia. A discontented youth movement emerged that would shake the very foundations of the empire that Slobodan Milosevic was attempting to create in Belgrade. The voice of the revolution was born and B92 was at the critical cultural edge. The DJs sought to keep…

Taliban House

DJ Set 16 Taliban House

Listen to Wez G – Taliban House byWez G on hearthis.at    Shuffle are always at the cutting edge of house music. Here we have created a new genre ‘Taliban House’. My boss who sidelines in tech warfare is off to Afghanistan on a sortie in a couple of weeks so I thought I’d prepare him for the trip and give him something to play in the helicopters and humvees. He’s been blown up four times in Iraq and I know Afghanistan is pretty damn dangerous so I thought I’d prepare him properly with a fired up mix. During the first gulf war, Iraqi troops at the front line were tortured with incredibly loud renditions of Bruce Springsteen – Born in the USA. I’m hoping that the Wez G Taliban House will go down a bit better with the enemy and maybe help bring peace to the region. They might lay down their arms and get grooving in the caves. Who knows? It’s worth a try. Look out for a Wez G Shuffle gig at Bagram Army base in the very near future… :::TRACKLISTING::: 1. Jim Morrison – To Come of Age [Elektra] 2.

A New Dawn?

I conduct a lot of research into esoteric knowledge on mind control techniques, psychic ability and centralised one world government system control. The internet is a minefield for this type of research and based on a lot of my personal experiences I have been drawn into the murky world of information mining. This article is presented with a few of these thoughts in mind. It hopes to awaken some of the reader’s ideas, encourage him to conduct further research and prepare himself for the dangers indentified for today’s world and tomorrow’s future. We live in a technological age. That is for certain. New technologies have, since the last century, developed at an accelerated rate and the rate of change just keeps increasing. My grandparents grew up in an age where globalisation was limited. They lived through the Second World War, survived rationing, relied on traditional media such as books and newspapers and saw the emergence of radio as a commercial medium. The world was a lot smaller a place. Travel wasn’t as cheap and easy, and technologies, although significant, didn’t allow for the communication as we see it presently. The world was not an ideal place. As I mentioned the Second World War dominated the mid century. Conflicting ideologies had arisen and men across the world shed their blood in the name of freedom. After the war we entered a nuclear era and a cold war which sparked a rapid succession of technological developments. Aside from the nuclear weapons technology, man developed the ability to travel to the moon and consumers saw their lives changed with the advent of television. By the 1980s, the computer age loomed. We have skipped on 30 years with computers becoming a dominant force in our lives. New tech such as mobile phones, sat nav systems and laptops are now essential consumer items throughout the world. The ability to communicate has never been wider. When I grew up, we just started learning about computers in school and most people had access to old machines for gaming and simple programming. The youth of today is surrounded by this new technology and absorbs it at an incredible rate. Their education is now reliant on computing and new technologies. Tomorrow’s world is daunting as adults today who are only just becoming computer literate will be far surpassed by the next generation’s tech abilities. It may appear scary, it…
