Post by Philwilli » Mon Dec 11, 2006 8:34 pm

First coming Friday 15.12 at 00.15 NRK-Tv in Norway is going to re broadcast partly
the 1988 concert Leonard had in Oslo.Because of trouble with the rights to show the
concert not all will be shown.
The interview Vera Kvaal had with Leonard will be in the program.

The original programme, titled Take This Waltz Europe 1988, had 6 songs I think, interwined with Vera Kvaal's great interview. One of the best shows, strongly recommended. Leonard in excellent mood, and very funny and bright red shirt of Bob Metzger beside Leonard (chewing gumm during his great Hallelujah guitar solo). There's excellent DVD/VCD circulating, with Slovakian overdubbing (TV Slovakia re-broadcasted it couple of years ago).

Tom,the programme starts at 00:15 and goes on to 01:05 when the next
programme starts.So it may look like we will get all the show as you have it.
The broadcast time looks exact the same as you say it is 49 min.
I hope so at least,so that i can get a good quality recording of the show.
We don't use dubbing here in Norway,only undertexting.
