Longer broadcast, NOS Along the Line due to fiftieth anniversary
NOS Along the Line means because of its fiftieth anniversary with an extra-long radio broadcast on Sunday 1 January. The broadcast on new year’s day, from 14.00 to 19.00 hours, is the beginning of the celebration of a jubilee year.
The sports program at NPO Radio 1 is one of the longest running radio programs in the omroephistorie.
Except the report of the NK marathonschaatsen and ski jumping in Garmisch-enkirchen on the first day of 2017 will also focus on the history of the program, and nostalgia.
In the first hour dozens of sound clips, over of special sport events from half a century down the Line.
Also, there are old-presenters, guests, among whom Koos Postema and Rocky Tuhuteru and pick up NOS-stars such as Bep, Kees Jansma, and Jack van Gelder memories. The music for this broadcast is selected by Leo Blokhuis and Pieter van den Hoogenband.
Along the Line was hear for the first time on 1 January 1967. Every Sunday afternoon listening half a million people to the live-firing of sports competitions, the latest news, columns, and interviews.
