Not the Danes Again

January 5, 1997 |

Have you ever thought about broadcasting from Scandanavia? I so enjoyed the program from Vancouver, BC.

Thanks again,
Judith K.

I did a Christmas program from Copenhagen years ago and it was a harrowing experience, Judith. The Danes I tried to interview made me drink aquavit and beer and eat pickled herring, until I almost lost my grip on reality. And you know Scandinavians don't laugh out loud at jokes. They almost do, and then they notice that nobody else is, so they figure it must not he funny. Vancouver was a walk around the block by comparison. If you have your heart set on a Scandinavian broadcast, I could do one from Decorah, Iowa. People around there are more Norwegian now than they were when they got here.
