This is the story of a courageous group of young people living under Milosevic?s repressive rule who waged a 10-year battle for freedom, armed only with a radio transmitter, some rock?n?roll records, and a dream of truth, justice and another kind of life. It?s a book about a group of idealists who started out wanting to play good music over the airwaves but had to negotiate two wars, economic sanctions, police violence and government crackdowns, armed gangsters and neo-Nazi politicians. They called themselves Serbia?s ?lost generation?; the government called them traitors, spies and terrorists. Despite police raids and state censorship, they refused to be defeated, and kept on broadcasting their message.This is Serbia Calling chronicles a decade (1990-2000) in which the legendary radio station B92 kept alive the voices of dissent. This second edition brings the story up to date as Serbia struggles to come to terms with the post-Milosevic era, in which its former president is put on trial for war crimes and its new Prime Minister is assassinated.New edition with new postscript by the author.
This is Serbia Calling is a fascinating portrait of how Serbia's "lost generation" expressed their resistance through the few channels left open to them. B92, an avant-garde Belgrade radio station run by a motley, courageous group of enthusiasts, provided a focus for young people who had "grown up thinking things were about to get better but had seen them get much, much worse".
