The song 'An den Kleinen Radioapparat' (To the Little Radio) was composed by Hanns Eisler to lyrics by Bertolt Brecht. The words, spoken by a German exile during the Second World War, are addressed to the radio, which continues to broadcast news from Nazi Germany. Through this little box, the speaker says, 'my enemies could still address me'.
