Farewell to Jerry Cowan

Dody & Jerry Cowan

In the 1960’s and 70’s, Radio Netherlands presented a popular weekly request programme hosted by a husband and wife team. “His and Hers” was hosted by Canadian Jerry Cowan and his wife Dutch wife Dody. Every Tuesday, they would read letters, play requests and make listeners feel as if they were guests in their own living room. When the programme was taken off the air, Jerry went on to the present the English language news bulletins at Radio Netherlands until his retirement.

In this farewell show, several of his colleagues wish him, his wife and their daughter all the best – some of them in Dutch – as they return to Canada for their retirement.
