"Why are only the current hitlists played up and down all day long and other songs are hardly played?", high school student joshua augsburg asks horfunk host matthias matuschik "matuschke". "I apologize for my good smell", answers this suffisant.
You can't please all the hornets. "They beg me on the phone to play their favorites – but please everything only from this one favorite, such as tina turner, bon jovi or other musicians", explains matuschke. For the pop music of lower franconia peter nader of "mainpop" asks for a permanent broadcasting forum at bavarian radio and a real chance for unknown bands.
"I have been playing brass music as a hobby for 25 years and would like to hear more of it at fixed times on the radio", heinz diehm from esselbach addresses BR1 program director susanne zimmer. It also obviously has the problem of not being able to please all listeners. Director ulrich wilhelm recommends the internet for "on demand" radio listening. However, he has no idea that there is often not enough bandwidth available in the countryside to enjoy a high-quality music broadcast without dropouts.
Gabriela amon from langendorf, who particularly enjoys listening to orchestral music from her home in lower franconia, praises BR. "Not only in munich at the odeonsplatz, but also here is a center of classical music", emphasizes the director of the music academy, kuno holzheimer. Chief conductor johannes moesus hopes that the bavarian chamber music from bad bruckenau will one day also be broadcast on BR.
Among the guests of the panel are also some prominent artists: "music is a rough gift", says cellist sol gabetta.And star drummer martin grubinger says: "austria sometimes looks with envy at bavaria, where there is cultural massiveness." the singing globetrotter stefan dettl from chiemgau, on the other hand, emphasizes: "the spab factor is important for me in music."
Five main TV cameras and other mobile hand-held cameras are in use during the broadcast. Scaffolding for cables and spotlights are erected. Outside the music academy are OB vans. A total of 20 BR employees are working in the technical area, some of them for two days already. The guests are impressed by the unusual TV atmosphere and hold out for three hours during the recording.
