Implied textNicknames: Lord Haw-Haw was the nickname of several announcers on the English
language propaganda radio programme Germany Calling, broadcast by Nazi German radio to audiences
in Great Britain on the mediumwave station Reichssender Hamburg and by shortwave to the United
States. William Joyce replaced Wolf Mittler in 1939as announcer for the station. Joyce was
American-born and raised in Ireland. He was the main German broadcaster in English for most of
the war, and became a naturalised German citizen; he is usually regarded as "Lord Haw-Haw," even
though he was probably not the person to whom the term originally referred. He had a peculiar
hybrid accent that was not of the conventional upper class variety. His distinctive pronunciation
of "Jairmany calling, Jairmany calling" which can be described as a "nasal drawl," may have been
the result of a broken nose. [wikipedia 6 Aug 2008]
