Don's news rant followed by .....This week I would like to tell you about another day trip I did as Monty Lister's sound man for another of his travelogues on Radio Merseyside....this week we feature Bergen in Norway....there and back in a day....again we started out from Speke Airport at around 6 in the morning...off the plane at Bergen and on to the coach.....Bergen is a beautiful place,very picturesque,and we were taken to the small harbour in the town where we boarded a boat and were treated to a trip down the fjord......which was spectacular with Monty in his element describing the scenery and interviewing fellow passengers.....the views were stunning.....when we got back to the town we were then taken to the funicular railway which takes you to the top of the nearby mountain which again was spectacular...from the top you had a breathtaking view of Bergen and the fjords.....on returning back to earth Monty suggested going for a beer in a nearby pub where we could sit outside and enjoy the scenery.....Monty offered to get the drinks...while he was gone I switched on the recorder and said "Monty Lister is now buying a round of drinks...the last time this happened three wise men came from the east"....I then switched it off as Monty arrived with two bottles of beer....he told me they cost £7 each which explained why he was staggering a bit....14 quid for two bottles of beer......once he had recovered we went back to the coach and got the plane back to speke with another travelogue in the bag......during the week Monty phoned me and said he was editing the programme and was not amused by my comment which he obviously edited out.
