Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Radio activities

Published: Wednesday 2005-06-15.

On Monday afternoon my eye caught an article about a new radio channel from NRK on the digital radio, a (more) local Oslo version of NRK P1, with a slightly younger profile (at times it has felt as if the target audience for the programmes on P1 is the same as for Always folk music, i.e pensioners, whereas P3 and mPetre seem to have teenagers as its target, which leaves those of us that fall in-between somewhat outside). Now they only transmit three hours worth of their own programming a day, the rest of the time they re-broadcast the “regular” local version of P1, but after having listened to the programme yesterday (didn’t see the article until after the transmissions ended on Monday) it seems like a nice, ad-free, channel to listen to instead of P4.

Since this is digital radio we are talking about they of course also transmit a scroll text with programme information and similar. Since they are doing summer radio, water temperatures for various places where you can go swimming in the area are scrolling by the display on the radio, but I must say that it doesn’t feel particularly tempting to go for a swim when the warmest water that is to be found is fifteen degrees (and since it is too late to be first anyway, I might just as well wait a while longer).

My normal radio-listening day at the office now looks somewhat like this:

Time Channel
8:00 NRK Always news
after 9:00 Radio Oslo (analogue)
12:00 NRK mPetre
13:00-16:00 NRK P1 Oslofjord

When I get home I usually listen to either SR P3 (via the cable TV network) or SR X (via the Internet).

Det lönar sig att lyssna på radio - P1 Oslofjord kör en musiktävling varje dag och idag visste jag svaret, så jag skickade iväg ett e-brev med mitt svar, och i nästa sekund blev jag uppringd och hade vunnit en badhandduk och fick prata i radio. Förra gången jag gjorde något liknande vann jag ju en dvd-box (fast på en annan kanal).

Fast jag undrar om de får så många svar, kanalen sänder bara på DAB och Internet och har existerat i fyra dagar... Nåja, jag ska inte låta sådana funderingar förta den goda känslan av att vinna något :-)

Du kan ju leka med tanken att frågan var ganska svår. I övrigt finns ju det gamla skämtet om varför norsk radio var tvungna att lägga ner sin motsvarighet till "Ring så spelar vi": de fick inte plats med alla skivor som låg i potten!

Tja, det var en kunskapsfråga. De spelade en låt och frågan var vad gruppen som framförde den hette, låten de spelade var "What's Up" från 1992, som framförs av en grupp som väl inte hade särskilt många fler hitlåtar än just den.

Det är lite av ett under att jag kunde vad de hette, jag brukar vara värdelös på sånt annars. Men någon gång ska väl kunskaper om trivialiteter vara bra att ha...
