After a look at the news, we remember one of Spain's first urban street artists, a young man from Madrid who was known as Muelle. His real name was Juan Carlos Argüello and in the late 80s and early 90s there could have been hardly anyone living or even visiting Madrid who had not seen his trademark signature logo spray painted on walls around the …
 
In today's program, we report on the new Memorial Center for Victims of Terrorism which opened earlier this week in the Basque capital of Vitoria, in the north of Spain.

This annual event is organized by Spanish NGO Ayuda en acción (aid in action) to raise funds for its educational projects for chi…
 
After a brief look at the News, we turn (once again) to Song. Singing a song is not only a good way to learn a language, it can also help preserve the language.

After a quick look at some current news we jump back in time by exactly a decade. On May 15, 2011 a massive demonstration in Madrid, organized by Democracia Real, Ya! and Juventud Sin Futuro (Youth Without a Future), quickly evolved into a movement, the 15-M. The slogans of the march, "You don't represent us" and "They call it democracy, but it's n…

Today's program, the second in a mini-series on Spanish-US relations during the Cold War, looks at the role of the US air force and naval bases in Spain as part of the Strategic Air Command. With the constant flight of nuclear-bomb loaded jets over Spanish skies it was only a matter of time before an accident occurred. On January 17, 1966 a routine…

And we look at what these results co…
 
In 1953, Spain and the United States signed an historical deal by which the U.S. installed strategic military bases in Spain and the Franco dictatorship gained international recognition and legitimacy. The Pact, set in the global context of the Cold War, has constituted the cornerstone of bilateral relations between the two countries. Since 1980, h…

Es…
