Radio Free Europe

The headquarters of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty has been located in Prague since 1995. Although they no longer broadcast to the Czech Republic, they continue to provide news and information to countries "where the free flow of information is either banned by government authorities or not fully developed." 

The Hoover Institution Library & Archives currently has over 100,000 sound recordings as part of the their Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty archival collection. A small portion of these have been digitized and made available online for users to access, including recordings from their Czechoslovak Broadcasting Department.
