The Cold War had its roots in World War II and even earlier in the 1917 Russian Revolution. It did not completely end with the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.
Voice of America started broadcasting in 1942 during World War II in the Office of War Information (OWI) and was initially strongly pro-Soviet, airing Soviet and communist propaganda in addition to anti-Nazi programs. During the Cold War, VOA changed its personnel and programming and contributed to the fall of communism in the Soviet Block.
Voice of America Affiliate Relations Munich Marketing Office requested in 1994 from VOA English and foreign language services in Washington a promo CD to help place VOA programs on public and private radio stations in Europe and Eurasia.
