After the death of his wife Greetje on Friday, 4 may, was a presenter Frits Spits for a few weeks on the radio to hear. Saturday morning sounded his familiar voice again by the boxes at the start of The Taalstaat on NPO Radio 1
“When, on the morning of the fourth of may, the first light between the trees for him, and the earliest birds their song lifted up, then died, my wife. A loyal listener of this program”, so opens Frits Spits his radio show.
“They kept as much of the Dutch language as I do. And indeed, they did not find anything good or beautiful, but often she was still very satisfied. Of course, she was also critical; then she asked very carefully if I completely understood what my guest had referred to. And or I that one song really so worth it took.”
“Fine, was that such a conversation. That I will remember as I do. Then it is just as if they were still a little bit in”, it sounds with a sob in his voice. “And you’re happy, and that’s a whole comfort. Welcome, in the Taalstaat.”
