Short story about this: After a heart attack and weakness, Carl Moike’s contract, which expired in 2005, was not extended. Andy Borg succeeded him in the 145th edition on 23 September 2006. In 2011 Carl Moike summarized his departure: “I had to separate and it took me two years to get away.” The pain, which lasted two years apart – was the life of “Musikenstadtal” Karl Moike.
Moike’s wife also came to Munich at the time for a PR appointment. for a good cause. Because in reality “stadal” would not exist without them. Moike recalled: “I always had the idea of an entertainment show with folk musicians.” In 1980, when ORF got a new head of entertainment with Harald Windisch, hopes were raised in Moike, then the presenter of the radio show “Volkstumleih Hitparade”. Finally, his wife tore the scales: “Now call Windseye and go there,” he told her softly but firmly.
So it happened that after a phone call on Tuesday in November 1980, an executive meeting was immediately followed on Thursday – Moike spoke with three concepts in his baggage: a morning pint show, an evergreen show and “Mushikantensteel” “. The result was an hour-and-a-half conversation, at the end of which Windisk asked about the next free live appointment. On March 5, 1981, the first “Muskantenstadtl”, strongly planned …
From the broadcaster, Moike smiled shortly before the “30-year-old” originally received only one guideline: “Make me an entertainment show without the smell of a beer tent. Well, then, just packed. ” Just because. “You can never imagine that today” Moik said. This was followed by 25 years of “stadals”, and 95 percent of them included “dreamy experiences” that excited Moike in 2011. It was a time filled with events that would require four or five lives for others, he said with apparent pride and underlined at the same time that “there was no such thing”: an entertainment event that would take over the world. Was organized on all five continents.
