Frits Spits’ poplimerick is back on Dutch radio for one week. In the NPO Radio 5 program Follow spot a new limerick about a famous song can be heard every working day from Monday.
The poplimerick was a regular item in the program Evening rush hour that Frits Spits presented between 1978 and 1995. For many commuters, rush hour was a regular feature in the early evening hours. Listeners were even allowed to submit their poplimericks. The item had not been heard on the radio since 1995.
The poems that can be heard for a week from Monday were written by Axel van der Ende, one of the editors of Evening rush hour in the eighties, and are read by Spits himself.
Almost every fixed program on NPO Radio 5 has adopted an old fixed radio item this week. So is in Work vitamins 50 Pop or an Envelope, Bert Haandrikman plays No Yes No No and is in Your Day is Good by Jeroen van Inkel the classic Council to hear a song (or not).
