I met Pirkko in Victoria BC, where I grew up. She was a family friend and very friendly too. I attended University of Victoria in the 70's and had just graduated in Biology when what do you know, she went back to school and was just starting at University of Victoria. Inward bound an outward bound! I hadn't realized all this time that she was interested in Finnish music. I was born in Finland but raised in Canada, and had missed out on schooling in Finland but tried to maintain my identity in the midst of all the influences that tries to destroy it. My parents spoke Finnish at home and I grew up reading and writing the language. Years went by and Pirkko graduated with a Masters Degree. That takes a lot of stamina for a girl whose education was in Finland, and did not have a mastery of the language. Having graduated, Pirkko did not want to leave the halls of learning totally; she stayed behind and ran this Finnish Streaming Radio program. She is dedicated and has done all this for over twenty years without so much as a dollar for transportation to and from the University. Although it is meant for the Finnish audience, she loves to have everyone listening to the music and Finns love her marvelously preserved Finnish language. The Finnish language has undergone some changes that are not positive according to one email. Here it is preserved for posterity on her web site. Pirkko enjoys salmon fishing with her husband Hannu, and relaxing in her Finnish sauna. Feel free to download her programs so future generations will have them. Send her an email and make her day. Thank you for dropping by. Osmo Joronen - Webmaster
