This album opens with the sound of flowing water and with some traffic messages. The dutch message you hear is that one from the voice of Marc Pinte, a well-known radio presenter here in Belgium who worked at that time for Studio Brussel and with the coming of Radio Donna, in 1992, he switched to Donna where you still can hear him today.

One day he was asked by his - in that time - net manager (Jan Houtekiet) to speak in a traffic message. "Verkeersinformatie. Op de E40 Brussel-Leuven is er net voor de afrit in Berchtem een ongeval gebeurd ..."
Nothing specials, he thought, because speaking in a traffic message beforehand was done often. But when he, a few months later, was asked again by Houtekiet to listen to a tape, he established that his voice was used for this forthcoming album by Chris Rea.

Marc Pinte told this story himself in 1993 in "De Drie Wijzen".
