Two months ago the Norwegian Broadcasting Bureau called me up and gave me free hands to dig their whole archive, (were talking about thousands of 1/4" AGFA tapes filled with music from 1965-1985) and make some radio broadcasts (called NRK Sessions) filled with music from the tapes.I found amongst others tapes with:-Miles Davis Septett Live at Chateau Neuf in Oslo in 1971-Bill Evans Live At The Munch Museum in 1966-Jimmy Hopps Exchanges (the drummer in Webster Lewis Quintett) who stayed behind in Oslo and formed this quartet with Jan Garbarek, Calle Neumann and Arild Andersen-Karlheinz Stockhausen, John Cage, Iannis Xennakis playing live and being interviewed at the Henie Onstad Art Centre in Norway-Berndt Egerbladh playing The Beatmaker with Jan Garbartek, Arild Andersen and Jon Christensen while visiting Oslo in 1966-Terje Rypdal playing the amazing fusion track Bend it! in an amazing version with Inger Lise Rypdal on vocals.Pluss lot of unreleased material by Svein Finnerud, Keith Jarret, Terje Bj??rklund, Earl Wilson and Herbie Hancock I will come back here in this thread with a bunch of pictures from the original sessions in the 60s and 70s which were taken for NRK own program magazine which were distributed to Norwegian homesThis material will only be played once and then put in the archives again so listen here to a unknown part of Jazz history NRK SESSIONS RADIOSHOW ( I speak Norwegian, skip five minutes after the news and the show starts)

    It's the same link. And it doesn't work in Safari or Firefox (on a Mac, at least). Works so-so in Camino, seems to work OK in Opera. Listening now.

    Godamnit, why can't national radio/TV stations get some decent developers for their websites? I get the same platform/browser problems when I use dr.dk (DR is our equivalent of NRK).
