A quarter of a century ago, many of our fellow countrymen began
to tune their radios to shortwave in order to receive necessary
information. In the Soviet Union, they listened to so-called Western
Enemy Voices in order to find out what was going on in the world,
especially, in their own homeland. Meanwhile, in Western Europe and in
North, South and Central America, our countrymen listened to Radio
Moscow, which was broadcasted from the Soviet Union. Often it so
happened that the different sides of The Iron Curtain listened to the
same radio stations and, primarily, the voices that carried The Good
News. Christian radio stations broadcasted the same programs into many
different places, using shortwave. Shortwave had originally been made in
order to reach a very wide audience, at one time tens of millions of
Time passed. Broadcasts using shortwave continued but their
audience rapidly grew smaller after The Iron Curtain fell. Listeners
turned their radios to local AM and FM frequencies because when the
censure was lifted, the most fresh and relevant news began to be
prepared and broadcast in real time from the place where the events
were actually occurring. Local Christian radio stations began to appear
as well, which attempted to provide quality broadcasting to as many
listeners as possible, but they were not always successful. With the
advent of the Internet and new technologies in the field of
broadcasting, has increased dramatically the background industrial
noise, which became hinder your favorite radio broadcasts on
conventional radio waves. Then a new incredible tool for radio
broadcasting was created Broadcasting Online, but not everyone was
ready for it. The Broadcasting Online works in the same way as any
shortwave radio but it is listened to by nearly all countries at the
same time, rather than by a local audience only.
Over the past few
years, The Russian Christian Radio Center has been working on new
programs with a Christian perspective which would be equally interesting
to various Slavic audiences in different countries. The goal of the
project is: To gather the best Christian programs in Russian, Ukrainian
and Special English. Those programs must unite listeners from various
countries like a Bridge of friendship, love and mutual understanding.
Using this bridge you can virtually go from one end of the country to
the other. Christians can use share their problems, their experiences,
their hopes and dreams, using phone calls, SMS, Skype and other
modern forms of communication. For example, listeners from Ukraine could
ask questions of an American radio host and Israeli listeners. Our dream
has begun to come true. Already for a year now, the Russian Christian
Radio Center has been working within itself and a month ago we began a
test broadcast open to everyone. This project received the name,
Slavic listeners of all countries, unite!
Right now, our station
offers Christian and socially important programs for families (Family
radio) children's programs, educational, news (Back to God Ministries
International by Pastor Sergey Sosedkin and journalist Sergey Khudiev from Russia) Simple truths
(Interdenominational Christian program) the Orthodox program Logos, Peace with You
(Christian program of Igor Pustynovich) Radio Beth Shalom of Rev. Andrey Nekrasov
(Bridge between Christians and Jews) and also some English programming:
Open Forum, Family Bible Reading, etc.
Our goal is to constantly fill our station with the most interesting and best Christian programming.
We invite everyone to help us unite the Slavic listeners of various countries.
