MN.14.04.1983. RadioPrague & OMD

In 1983, the UK pop group Orchestral Manoevers in the Dark released an album called Dazzle Ships.  OMD, then at their peak of popularity, opted for a major departure in sound on the record, using shortwave effects and off-air clips from Radio Prague. It was interesting to discover much later that Radio Prague announcers didn't know about it, but were actually quite flattered. We called up OMD to find out more - those analogue lines from London were ropey!
