Well Mr Startz, I am going to send you some Icelandic sailor songs. The tune of introduction is by Mr. Jonasson, who is a radio producer and he is assisting the speaker now.
Dear Mr. Startz, Of course the introductional tune is not a sailor song, but it is a pleasure anyway to be able to greet you in this way, because many years ago I listened to your program and I enjoyed it enormeously. It is a pleasure to be able to help Mr. Olofson to produce this program and I hope you and your listeners will enjoy it. Thank you very much and keep up the good work.
The first song I like you to hear is: We are facing a strong gail (English translation)
What is a Icelandic folk song and I think you will like it a lot.
The first and last … are by an unknown author, but the intervening section on ….., who is the idol of early Icelandic seamen, was written by a very famous poet Ern Arnosson.
Mr. Olofson says goodbye to Happy Station. This medley songs made by 14 folks brothers. the songs are new and very popular in Iceland.
