A hint of farewell in the air. An employee of Alex Manfred Sangel, all the Manne call, they will leave their employer in the near future. You would be happy if man would come to her recusal. Is a good thing, because he may make a counter-invitation. For this Saturday, when from eleven to 13 hours to 653. and at the same time, the last Time the Hertha-Echo on the air will go, to the day, exactly 30 years after the Premiere, on 16. February 1989. "Really? No!“ the associate of Alex, the former Open channel, referred to as a cross-media Community-the station says. "That's a shame. You can't even imagine.“
but it Is so. Age is a reason, told Sangel who was on the first shipment 29. He has always said, if the Hertha-Echo to the seniors-is Echo, you should stop. "Radio is oldschool. And we before all things.“ The young people listened to today's podcast. Since there are now some that deal with Hertha and are available at any time.

man of the first hour in the citizens radio
the rise and fall of the Hertha-echo – this is not just a story about the changes of Hertha BSC in the Special and professional football in Particular, it is also a piece of media history. It starts with the introduction of the Privatfunks, as you still had the feeling of a new Era. In 1985, the cable pilot project, which offered people like you and me the opportunity to start in Berlin, his own radio show to broadcast. Sangel was in the citizens radio is a man of the first hour. He started with a program called City Sound. His first celebrity interview partner Hannelore Kohl, the wife of the Federal Chancellor.
It is the Thursday before the rear round kick-off at 1. FC Nürnberg, the fourth-last Hertha-Echo at all. Will be sent in the case of Alex, a few steps from the train station Warschauer Straße station. Sangel takes off the jacket and the Hertha scarf, and underneath it he is wearing a blue Hertha T-Shirt. There are still nearly one and a half hours. Torsten-Jörn Klein will be a guest, Herthas Chairman of the Supervisory Board. With Günther Koch, the former Radio Reporter and FCN-Supervisory Board, is arranged a telephone interview. On average Sangel takes 15 hours for the preparation of a shipment. Earlier it was much more.
In normal life, he works as a Department Manager of a time work company, but the main is professionally Sangel actually Hertha-Fan, formed in the curve, with study visits in many German and European stages. You had to be a true Fan to the end of the Eighties on the idea to make a radio programme exclusively about Hertha BSC. A team that had crashed out of the League in the lowlands of the Berlin Amateur football, played suddenly against Bayern Munich, but on ash TSV Rudow. And has been ignored by the established Berlin-based media to a large extent. "Since keene Sau has reported on Hertha," says Sangel. So they made it easy.
At the Start of the Hertha-echoes 30 years ago, the team played after all, already in the Second League. The "football week" was announced under the Heading "Better Information", the "Hertha-magazine in the cable radio broadcasting" and concluded its report with the forecast: "All the note values, efforts will fizzle out, if they should not get away from the table at the end." Hertha itself issued a press release on the new show. From the outset, a peaceful coexistence with the club, which persists to the present day.
It cost the club "nothing"
Manager Horst Wolter just wanted to know what would be the cost of the Entire Hertha. "Nothing," replied Sangel. "Okay, let's do it." In the first mission of the Manager, Trainer Werner Fuchs and Winter new arrival Dirk Kurtenbach. The coach of the next Hertha opponent Union Solingen was the phone switched on. "How easy it was to telephone numbers approach," says Sangel. Today the clubs have their own media channels – Podcasts, club TV, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram – you spread your content.
The guestbook of the Hertha-echo shows still other times. It is thick as the Bible. Dieter Hoeness about Arne Friedrich, Michael Preetz, all have signed with dedication. The 25-Year-old the entire Hertha drove team on the Bus. "I'm rarely speechless," says Sangel. "Because I was there." In the last program, there should be a cross section of what has made the Hertha-Echo. "The vast majority of the guests has said," reports Sangel. As he looks forward to the end? "Wistful, definitely."
half An hour before the broadcast, the Studio is filled. Mini and mosquito have come, just sit and listen. Jürgen Keiser, the second presenter, Barbara Wegner-Ottow, which collects decades of O-tones, Sangels wife Susi. In total, there are around 20 people who help more or less intense. Whether he is after all this time, still nervous? Sangel by breathing even, considered. "Positive excited", he replies. "No fun otherwise."
in 1993, before the Cup final of the Hertha Amateurs against the Bundesliga side, Bayer Leverkusen, had says its Manager, Reiner Calmund his visit to the Studio. Ten minutes prior to the broadcast he was still there. Five minutes later: no trace of Calmund. No one knew where he was. Then the door flew open, Calmund rushed in, and it was "awesome, sensational," says Sangel. Another Time, striker Artur Wichniarek. Shortly before the broadcast Sangels phone rang at the other end of Wichniarek. Why did he not open the door, asked the Pole, he was the one who all the time horn. Sangel had not heard a honk. He also could not. Wichniarek at his home in front of the door, because Herthas press Secretary had given him the wrong address. The Interview finally took place on the phone.
Two minutes there are until the Start of the show. Sangel has put on the headphones, he flips a little at the buttons on his console, pushes the Knob in the correct Position. "So, now, focus!", he says. And it is not quite clear whether he means the people in the Studio, or yourself. Sangel beats the drum three Times with the fingertips on the tabletop, glances at his schedule and then asks: "when was the test match against Bielefeld?"
Bye Bye Love
After the Jingle is still the same as in 1989, addressed Sangel about the test game against Bielefeld, which took place in the week before. He chats with Günther Koch on a second League match of Hertha in Bayreuth, at the time, commented on deep in the eighties, from him for the Radio. Koch can't recall, but that doesn't matter. Then there's music. The Everly Brothers. Bye Bye Love.More about
