The term ’Hilversum III was not yet’ from the homonymous song of Herman van Veen gets a place in the new edition of the oxford English Dictionary. That has editor-in-chief Ton den Boon reported. The song was in 1984, written by Willem Wilmink. Hilversum III, the precursor of the Dutch radio station 3FM, was a symbol for the modern age in which people no more together sing songs during work. “The term over the past few decades the original meaning transcended,” says Den Boon. “It is now a symbol of the grey past. In the last few years the term even used a period to indicate after Hilversum III actually existed.”
