9781852426828: This Is Serbia Calling, Rock N Roll Radio & Belgrade's Underground Resistance

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. This is a new edition with new postscript by the author.

Review:

"'Collin has not only found a way into the psyche of intelligent, tolerant young people suddenly swamped by a tide of fascist hate... he also shows how pop music can still ignite change, or quietly save souls, when life arrives at its most extreme' Uncut; 'Matthew Collin captures the conviction of a generation whose culture and identity were under siege' Independent on Sunday"
