That's pretty cool actually... the "Steigerlied" performed on Times Square. Bit of an anachronism though as the last colliery closed here at the end of last year.

Olaf, been meaning to ask you is Henning Wehn funny in German?
He makes me laugh out loud every time I hear him but I wondered if it translated or whether he changed his material when doing it in German.

Yep the story about the magic Irish accent spray and another one about trying to cross a boarder in Europe spring to mind, very funny.

Irish accent spray is the best. Top of the morning! Henning is like bob mortimer on that show, the more utterly ridiculous the yarn, the more likely it is to be true.
