Hoover Institution exhibit on the 1956 Hungarian Uprising includes "broadcasts by Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (in Hungarian with English transcripts)." Hoover Institution press release, 7 September 2006. Update: "Radio Free Europe went on the attack, supplying its eager listeners with advice about partisan warfare, and dropping heavy hints about the inevitability of American intervention. One infamous radio broadcast, filed in early November during the second, decisive Soviet invasion of Budapest, appeared to encourage Hungarians to keep fighting, since 'the pressure upon the government of the US to send military help to the freedom fighters will become irresistible.'" Anne Applebaum, Der Tagesspiegel, 13 September 2006.
