Beishan Broadcasting Station

Historic Site in Kinmen

The now-defunct Beishan Broadcasting Station stands on a cliff by the sea. Forty-eight speakers were punched into the concrete exterior wall, each with a reported range of 25km, that used to crank out propaganda like 'Our steamed buns are bigger than your pillows!' to the communists. These days, the speakers prefer the mellow but equally surreal messages of the late Teresa Tang, Taiwan’s best-loved songbird, to her 'mainland compatriots'.
