The chair is against the wall… John has a long mustache… Wound my heart with monotonous languor… . Most of you reading this have heard all the Wolverine Red Dawn quotes, but there’s more to it.
It’s 11:59 on Radio Free America; this is Uncle Sam, with music, and the truth until dawn. Right now I’ve got a few words for some of our brothers and sisters in the occupied zone. The chair is against the wall. The chair is against the wall. John has a long mustache. John has a long mustache. It’s twelve o’clock, American, another day closer to victory. And for all of you out there, on, or behind the line, this is your song.”
It’s similar to “Radio London” (Radio Londres), which broadcast through most of WWII from England into Nazi-occupied France. Operated by the Free French in conjunction with the BBC, it served to counter Axis propaganda and also to pass along coded instructions to members of the Resistance, the OSS, and others involved in fighting against the occupation.
