Head of Programming 1LIVE, Deputy Director Radio, WDR
Although NRW is now called sector by 1LIVE, many radio practitioners are nonetheless envious of what we have: quantity and quality are not mutually exclusive in NRW. Even large stations still have place for experiments, and there are regular slots at 1LIVE for radio drama, features and readings.
At breakfast in Münster Hiltrup, in a traffic jam on the B1, on a construction site in Alsdorf, under the shower in Essen Werden, secretly in a maths lesson in Oerlinghausen, jogging up the hill to the Hermann in Detmold, when waking up/ falling asleep/dosing/making love in a bedroom in Nettersheim, when smooching in the Landschaftspark Nord in Duisburg ... I like to join in all the time. Thank you for letting me.
