Pesach on the national radio

In the 1950th there used to be a radio broadcast on one of the national channels (probably AVRO) about Pesach. There would be a speaker, a chazzan and a boy saying ma nishtana. These were live recordings, which created quite some stress, especially with the boys. Track nr 12  is the live recording from 1951, where chazzan Moskovitz and his son Moshe (1947) at the age of 4 performed. Probably the chazzan sung track 11 & track 13. Another live Pesach broadcast, which is most probably older, was made by chazzan Hans Bloemendal & David (Loulou) Sondervan (1943). The speech of mr J. van Dijk got lost (recording collection fam Sondervan).
