They may have started out some 15 years ago as the ‘youth show’, but even now, they present a program that is fun and aimed firmly at the young at heart! Their favourite topics are not only movie and book reviews, but also the latest events in Germany and Melbourne, plus intriguing guests and interviews, and any quirky news from the German-speaking world that they can find! And it’s all interspersed with a broad range of German-language music – from pop to alternative, through folk-rock, rap and right out there to songs sung in dialects, Swiss-German and Austrian. Get on board with the Surfers!
