Annoying the Neighbours - Schlager Revisited!

Schlager is a seemingly innocuous term that seems to evoke reactions ranging from fear to disgust in many circles. But for its fans, and you know who you are, this is all overblown. Just think to all those records you or your parents may have played when you were much younger.. but of course think in German...  A special treat for fans and who knows, it may even attract a few new ones!
