MAUERSPECHTE HÖREN

Well. The wall has gone a longtime ago.
Almost forgotten, when suddently david hasselhof was singing again at eastide galery around 2 weeks ago. This made me think about this wall.
Where was it? What is left ? Where was east & west?
I came too late, so i havent seen it. I dont know anything about it.
Also i wanted to know what happend to the airwaves occupied by spys on both sides of the wall. this picnic radio emission is a journey along the topographic lines of the iron curtain. Capturing ground surface, shortwave snippets and some goodies between:

Its 167.8 km. I have an average travel speed of around 15 km/h. that means a total of 11.18 hours. if all goes well. This material has to be condendsed to half an hour. So i have to drive around 335 km/h. Or compress it by 22 times. hmmmmm. We will see what happens.
