From Brooklyn to Banja Luka - Airs Feb. 15

Radio Netherlands describes the documentary this way: "Jonathan is a nice Jewish boy from Brooklyn. He has a typically New York loudness, and he's flamboyant, musical and pretty good with languages. Dragana is a nice Serbian girl from Bosnia. She is prone to the occasional Slavic melancholy, but is also generally loud, musical, and pretty good with languages. They live in Holland, a small and sober country that, at first glance doesn't seem suited to either temperament." We first aired this story a couple years back on the Lounge. It makes a big, beautiful return on Feb. 15 so you soak in its Valentine's Day glow. By the way, the program won a Prix Europa in 2005 and a Gold Medal at the New York International Radio Festival.
