June 28 lead us 2 begin & end of WW1
On 28 June 1914 the Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated and this was the casus belli of the First World War. Exactly 5 years later, on 28 June 1919, the Treaty of Versailles was signed. If we would have informed our American partner about this treaty via a commercial satellite phone call we would have been forced to wait until 28 June 1965.
Furthermore, we are commemorating the births of Peter Paul Rubbens (born 1577) and Richard Rodgers (born 1902), and we look forward to the 200th broadcast of fm brussel's funk & soul show Blackalicious.
