  • TAG : An overview of all 2 Meter Sessions since 1987
  • In addition to the main content, the DVD has the now seemingly compulsory array of extras. There is the usual 'making of' of the '2 Meter Sessies', which (as I usually find with these things) is probably only interesting if you're somehow connected with the band and/or appear in the documentary. More entertaining are the promotional videos for and . These hardly have the highest production values, and in fact remind me more of the videos you used to get in the eighties (lots of questionable miming whilst standing on hills and castles and suchlike) but they were clearly fun to make, and besides any video which has the delectable Simone Simons parade about in no fewer than six equally alluring outfits (as does ) has to be recommended! ahem.

  • Jan Douwe Kroeske en 2 Meter Sessies zijn sinds september terug op de Nederlandse televisie. Om dat te vieren, én omdat we 22 en 23 februari 2014 de FWD*HiFi-Dagen organiseren in Radio Kootwijk – met Jan Douwe als gastheer –, zochten we de programmamaker op tijdens de opnames van een nieuwe 2 Meter Sessie.

    For those of you not familiar with the '' (2 meter sessions) let me first explain them a little. In the eighties a radio DJ called Jan Douwe Kroeske did a show on the Dutch public radio. Because he is a very tall man (around two meters) his show was called '2 meter de lucht in' (2 meters on the air). In 1987, Crowded House during their new album promo tour, decided to perform some tracks of their new album in the small radio studio. Later on an irregular basis, other artists did the same thing and most of them took only an acoustic guitar and some other small instruments with them.
