LUISE MARTINI, Die Brieftaschen-Anni, 1957

Luise Martini (born 1931) is an Austrian actress. In 1957 she started co-hosting the popular daily radio-show Autofahrer unterwegs (car drivers on the way). The one-hour show ran for 42 years and featured music, traffic reports and notification requests for travellers on the road. These requests,  searching for travellers when a close relative at home was seriously ill or dead, are still being broadcasted all over Europe during summer vacation.  Of course in the past they were of greater importance. Before cellphones, once you were travelling, you were gone.

In the swinging Brieftaschen-Anni (wallet-Anni), sung in Austrian dialect, Luise Martini is telling the humorous story of Anni, a professional thief who “doesn´t like boogie, be-bop and rock´n´roll, because it makes stealing impossible when you´re twirling up in the air”.
