Radio worms

This morning, I heard on the radio that it's 80 years since Radio Ljubljana (as it was called back then) started operating. That was back in 1928. In order to celebrate this anniversary, they made a short inquiry: people could call and tell about their most memorable moments with the radio. I didn't call, but while I was listening to the show, I started thinking about my radio memories... And I came up with my most memorable one: war-time radio (I was 7 years old back then). During the war for the independence of Slovenia in 1990, radio was the only portable source of news that we took with us into the shelters during the air raids. The one thing that I remember the most has to do with the music that was on in that time. There were only 2 songs that they played over and over again: one was by a Slovene singer and the other one was Wind of Change by The Scorpions. I remember listening to the song on a small transistor I had with me and watching the "rain" of bombs falling just a few kilometres away from our village...

 

So, here's a shot in memory of those days! (It's a reflection of the light in the loudspeakers of my radio, taken with long exposure.)
