Billy Joel’s 1989 song, “We Didn’t Start the Fire” mentioned, ‘North Korea, South Korea’ in the first verse…. the same year that the Berlin Wall came down; to some, a signifier that The Cold War between the United States and The Soviet Union was over.
And now, Cold War fears of a possible nuclear weapon detonation again looms, with North Korea’s and the United States’ leaders taunting each other.
We lived through those days. We still remember what it was like.
This week we’re dredging up those memories to inform the younger listeners who might not know what to make of all this some of what they might be feeling and what to expect.
