Reader's Comment

Ik ben Albert Pinkster,een nieuwe abonnee. Bedankt voor die leuke CD, ik vond het prachtig! Mooi zo op z’n Hollands hè.Ik vind het een pracht taal. Zelfs na 50 jaar in Australië vind ik het Hollands nog mooi. Eigenlijk als het er op aan komt vind ik het Grunnegers nog mooier. Maar daar zullen we het maar niet verder over hebben. Nogmaals bedankt.
