Interview this afternoon on Belgian national radio

Just a quick note to any Dutch-speaking Typophiles who might be interested. I'm being interviewed this afternoon between 3 and 4 pm for Neon, a program on Radio 1 (Belgian national radio), about 50 years of Helvetica.

I hope I don't screw up! :^P

BTW I'll be proudly wearing my "Who needs Helvetica?" Hattenbach T-shirt. Figures...


Congrats, Yves! Is it a call in show? I'll dial in and throw a soft ball question.

Hahahahaha, you wish! My main concern is that in preparation of the interview I already talked for a full hour with the editor, and I only have like 10 minutes.

Yves and Helvetica! The battle of the giants!
I have 3 hours to learn Dutch ;^)

Congrats Yves (and thanks for the amazing 007 postcard).


Sounds like a Dutch treat!


I recorded the thing and an MP3-file wil be uploaded on the Magelaan website by next week.

Does it have subtitles? :-)


Well, I basically recount the history of Helvetica and try to explain why it has become so inevitable that it warranted the making of a documentary.

Were you eating Helveeta while taping the show?
