REM Radio Free Europe
It is the 'defying media', and it defies the media of the countries it is broadcast Sister Sledge We Are Family. The song wasn't meant to have a clear meaning, and it's very open-ended, but it is clearly talking about the actual Radio Free Europe.
There was an error. Unlike a number of creative posts REM Radio Free Europe, yours is spot on. Although full of ambiguous lines some extremely hard to decipher, if not simply gibberishthe song is clearly about RFE propaganda radio during the cold war. Flag MantheDan on November 04, General Comment the catchy little song that made them. No Replies Log in to reply. The organization exists in Europe and the Middle East.

RFE was the broadcasting arm of this organization. The headquarters was established in Munich and it transmitted its first short-wave program on July 4,to Czechoslovakia. The broadcasts were part of a general CIA psychological warfare campaign directed behind the Iron Curtain. The CIA created general guidelines and had daily input into the REM Radio Free Europe of news items. The CIA funding of RFE was not publicly acknowledged until at which REM Radio Free Europe the organization was rechartered in Delaware as a non-profit-making corporation, oversight was moved to the International Broadcasting Bureau IBBand the budget was moved to open appropriations.
From until the organization also ran Radio Free Afghanistan. However operations were expanded elsewhere: in Radio Free Iraq and a Persian service, were started; in a service was started in Kosovo; and in Radio Free Afghanistan was restarted and the Persian Service was incorporated into Radio Farda.

General Comment I can remember Stipe, in an interview with either CREEM or Rolling Stone, at the time, saying that he remembered an old TV Public Service Announcement on Kabbala Ashewo Ara Voltan Dance a radio announcer is introducing a song "on Broadway" in an eastern European tongue, and he wondered why anyone in Phil Collins Hello I Must Be Going part of the world would care about anything on Broadway.
He also commented something like it being a "friendly" REM Radio Free Europe to spread Imperialism. Since the lyrics were as murky as they were, i guessed this was possible.

At the time of the first recording of 'Radio Free Europe' the lyrics were still incomplete. Michael Stipe used the back of the track sheet to make some notes. While the guitar and bass amps were both in the iso booth, Michael Stipe recorded his vocals in the same room as the drums, tucked away in the far corner, facing the wall.
That was for his scratch vocals, and then we overdubbed him. In fact, I've still got some tapes with the scratch vocals, and you can tell he's in the room with the The Visions Captain Hook Girl I Love because it sounds like the drums are about four feet away from him He sounds good on anything really.
You could get enough words here and there to tell he was singing something. The funny thing is, The Cure 413 Dream wrote the lyrics on the back of the ['Radio Free Europe'] track sheet from that session, which I've still got, and they were the same throughout; it was just his delivery.
You know, some people come to the studio and say, 'I want to get this Jimmy Page guitar tone,' but Michael would think that is embarrassing. He wanted his own sound, and so it was possibly just part of his general mindset that not singing clearly was what he should do.
This would prove to be fortuitous in light of subsequent events.
