Berlin Airlift was a popular Boston band in the early 1980s whose name refers both to frontman Rick Berlin's surname and the Allied mission to fly food and supplies to blockaded West Berlin in 1948-1949. In 1981, Boston radio stations played two songs from the band, "Over The Hill" and "Don't Stop Me From Crying," and that eventually led to a recording contract with Handshake/CBS Records and the release of their eponymous debut album Berlin Airlift. Six weeks after the release, Handshake Records declared bankruptcy, and the album died in infancy.
