How did this work, by the way? How do you broadcast to the enemy, and expect them to tune in and listen?

Very simple. Just take a really powerful radio station and broadcast with a lot of power to make sure that your signal reaches the enemy country without much attenuation. Then just hope that people there will tune in and listen.

The BBC did the same, broadcasting from the UK into occupied Europe during WWII. Although it can be said that, in this case, they had a better chance of being listened to due to the whole "occupied country" thing, which would possibly guarantee a reasonable amount of natives of that country ready and willing to listen to the BBC.
