This blog is dedicated to the sublime instruments called nose flutes and which produce the most divine sound ever. We have chosen to discard all the native models from S.

German TV archive

A German TV archive in which the comedian Hans-Werner Olm offers a Nasenflöte to the presenter Oliver Pocher and tries to teach him how to play. The program was called Rent a Pocher, and was broadcast from Jan. 2003 to Apr. 2006. This is an excerpt of SE01/EP06, and so probably dating of 2003.
