Within the cultural history of the Cold War some attention has been paid to the history of western broadcasting to Soviet bloc countries in Central and Eastern Europe. Most of this work has concentrated on the institutional histories of individual radio stations and their relationships to politics. Little or no systematic attention has, however, been paid to the reception of those radio stations in their target societies. This article, which concentrates on the reception of the Voice of Free Hungary in that country during the early 1950's, lays the foundations of an approach to the social history of western broadcasting towards the Soviet bloc.
