    This week on FMWL - Vasily visits a private clinic, Nataly recalls classic Soviet radio shows for kids on cable radio in the USSR, and Moscow is hit by a thunderstorm in the midst of January.

    This week, Vasily visits a private clinic to have his knee checked out and pays a small fortune for a consultation and an MRI. What is the level of service at private medical institutions in Moscow? Also on the show – Who or what was Radio Nanny? Nataly recalls some classic Soviet radio broadcasts for kids and talks about cable radio in the USSR. Finally – Moscow is hit by a thunderstorm in the midst of winter, the local streets are now patrolled by English speaking police officers, and the price of Vodka goes down. What else? Oh, there’s “Mailbag” and we’re on Facebook.
