“At SXSW in Austin last week, as part of a marketing campaign for ‘The Man in the High Castle,’ Amazon launched ‘Resistance Radio,’ a fake Internet-based radio station broadcast by the fictional American ‘Resistance’ from the show.
‘Hijacking the airwaves, a secret network of DJs broadcast messages of hope to keep the memory of a former America alive,’ the website said. Click through, and an interactive image of an antique, dual-knob radio appears while mod tunes drift through your computer’s speakers. In between songs, DJs on three different stations speak about how to fight the ‘Reich’ in America.
Soon #ResistanceRadio, the campaign’s sponsored hashtag, spread like wildfire on Twitter. Some Trump supporters seemingly mistook it for an anti-Trump radio station and expressed their displeasure. (Amazon founder Jeffrey P. Bezos owns The Washington Post.)”
