Brandenburg Gate Reopening Falling of the Wall Berlin

What happened on December 22?

The year 1989 was hectic and joyful in many ways. Its key event happened on this very date when the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin re-opened. After literally separating the city into ‘East’ and ‘West’ for nearly 30 years.

Thankfully, we have comedian Anthony Jeselnik (*1978) here with us today to throw around some jokes after the initial heavy memory!

And what will Slovakia’s engineer Herman Potocnik (*1892) and Italian composer Giacomo Puccini (*1858) build for us today?

Surely, it will provide ideas for Ralph Fiennes‘ (*1962) next acting role and a splendid radio review by Gene Rayburn (*1917).
