The Cuban Radio Transcripts is a window into the Cuban government's day-to-day viewpoint on two decades of post Cuban-Revolution history. Compiled from two sources from the Cuban Heritage Collection at the University of Miami Libraries, the "Miami Radio Monitoring Service" and the "Report from Miami," this collection presents researchers with transcriptions of daily news broadcasts from radio stations inside communist Cuba.
