Although these historical pieces of World War II radio material were no doubt produced in the offices of Propaganda Minister Dr. Josef Goebbels in Berlin, there is not an eagle or swastika on them anywhere. Naturally, the German Library of Information discontinued the publication of GERMANY CALLING after December 7, 1941 and most Americans, regardless of their persuasion, stopped listening to German radio.
Since the listings in GERMANY CALLING went out of date every few weeks and since few Americans would want to have a copy lying around their house during the war, virtually all were destroyed. There two examples are very rare in in good used condition!
