RNW archive

This article is part of the RNW archive. RNW is the former Radio Netherlands Worldwide or Wereldomroep, which was founded as the Dutch international public broadcaster in 1947. In 2011, the Dutch government decided to cut funding and shift RNW from the ministry of Education, Culture and Science to the ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Our first Eurobuster this month comes from a new Dutch singer called Krystl (full name Krystl Pullens). The track itself is called Golden Days (not the David Bowie track of the 1970s). I can't find an English-language site for Krystl, but here's one in Dutch with a number of videos to watch.  

COMPETITION 34 - JANUARY 2011: answer and winners 

In the second half of the January show we played a song by Nelly. Question: is Nelly a man or a woman?

Answer: A MAN (many of you got this wrong, so I assume you may have answered without listening to the show... naughty, naughty! ;-)).

Luckily, we have many correct answers, too. Our three lucky winners this time are:

  • P.V. Ramana Rao of India
  • Kamran Ghani also from India
  • Dmitry Tychinin of the Russian Federation

Congratulations to all three of you. Your flag certificates are shown below. Your prizes will be in the post soon - but first we need to know your T-shirt choice!
