Music and audience in close contact

How is the "new"? The new one, that is matthias brodowy. A northern light. He now took over as host from bodo wartke. Also a northern light. Brodowy was a wonderful conversationalist, someone who knew how to tell stories without any trace of chumming up to the audience.
