Buntman - the development of the concept of a fundamentally new for the USSR talk radio station, built on the principles of free journalism, the complete absence of propaganda and brainwashing. Alexey Venediktov recalled that people who worked at the State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company were tired of lying, so they decided to start their own radio business. Initially, the founders of Echo of Moscow as a mass media were the Moscow City Council of People's Deputies, the Radio Association, the Ogonyok magazine and the journalism faculty of Moscow State University.
On August 9, 1990, the registration of the radio station as a media outlet was completed by the Moscow Soviet on the basis of the USSR Press Law, which entered into force on August 1, 1990.

However, Echo traditionally celebrates its birthday a month later, when everything is in place after the summer holidays.
Coverage of the events in Vilnius in January 1991 became a baptism of fire for Echo. A few days after that, a TASS report appeared, where it was a question of a malicious station living on American money and simply slandering from under the Kremlin wall itself. There were not only attempts to put pressure on the radio station, but they wanted to actually close the station.
