Syndicate: inquiry: public loudspeaker systems?

dear friends,

we were discussing a project about sound in public spaces the other night
and were wondering how much truth there is to the myth that, all across
central and eastern europe, there were these 'big brother'-style
loudspeaker systems in the streets through which public announcements could
be made at any time.

did they exist?
has anybody done research about them?
is there any archival material about how they were (supposed to be) used?

i'd be happy about comments and suggestions for sources.
