Radio JFK begins its b’casting day in Berlin

BERLIN — A Berlin radio station named after former president John F. Kennedy went on the air Wednesday, broadcasting a mix of news and 1960s American pop music.

Radio “JFK,” which calls itself “the Entertainment Station,” says its broadcasts are aimed at yuppies living in Berlin.

The first morning’s transmissions consisted of 1960s pop tunes, including several by Frank Sinatra, interspersed with short but succinct news bulletins.

Pre-launch advertisements for the station carried Kennedy’s famous quote “Ich bin ein Berliner” (I am a Berliner) made in a 1963 speech in West Berlin.

Tension between East and West was high following the 1961 construction of the Berlin Wall by communist East Germany to stop its citizens fleeing to the West.
