'Jukebox' like 40 years ago, remains a tool of communication, where there is no Internet, no telephone, and the occasional earnings per week is 200-300 rubles. Radiohuligany divided, as it were into two categories: 'truckers' – with powerful transmitters, more interested in holding long-distance connections (thousands of km.), and "organ-grinders' – the radius of action within their locality. Will 'truckers', and 'organ-grinders' on call so, though in different regions existed and Other terms – definitions. The main activity was organ-grinders 'chase music'. Activities of this, I must say, was demanded by society! It is no secret that the Soviet radio is not particularly spoiled listeners diverse repertoire. Tape recorders, even more so – portable, in short supply. And here some 'Commissioner' or 'smoke' translates news Western pop poluzapreschennogo Vysotsky, etc.
You could take a simple 'transistor' and rest on the nature of a modern music. The authorities, naturally, fought radiihuliganstvom as they could. Illicit manufacture and use of transmitters was qualified by Article 206 of the rsfsr Professional Code (disorderly conduct) – from a fine of 50 rubles. up to 1,5 years. Actually so with a light hand of a journalist and there was a neologism 'radiohuligan', and not because of free operator behaved indecently in the air! Even hung banners calling for 'surrender' radiohuliganov, but public opinion, thanks to 'sharmanochnoy' music, it was on their side. Repressive measures are clearly not yield results. Free operators were caught, but they bred like mushrooms after rain. Many after the first 'aerial' resume its activity.
