Under the Raydar: Universal languages
Apr 2, 2016 7:00 am| by TheCopenhagenPost

My little Danish house sits just across the street from a daycare centre. When the windows are open, the breeze often carries over the laughter of the children from the playground. When my own kids were still little enough to be there, I could hear them joining in. As is often the case in Denmark … Continue reading Under the Raydar: Universal languages

Under the Raydar: Taking it easy – in 1986 and 2016
Feb 13, 2016 7:00 am| by TheCopenhagenPost

Challenger blew up 30 years ago last month … a moment most Americans remember like it was yesterday. Assigned to cover the story, it was an opportunity to make my mark on history, but in the end, it was more that the shuttle that crashed that day. Let’s just say it wasn’t my finest hour … Continue reading Under the Raydar: Taking it easy – in 1986 and 2016

Under the Raydar: A Junkyard Christmas
Dec 24, 2015 7:00 am| by Chris C

I attempted to teach my son how to switch over to snow tyres when we got a bit of snow a few weeks ago. And much to my shock and dismay, I discovered that modern vehicles come with neither a spare nor, more importantly, a damn jack, and instead just some lame-ass pump that is … Continue reading Under the Raydar: A Junkyard Christmas

Under the Raydar: Two sides of the same krone
Nov 7, 2015 7:00 am| by TheCopenhagenPost

  I try in this column to be universal and not too American-centric. But with Democratic US presidential contender Bernie Sanders gushing like a 13-year-old with his first crush about his love for Denmark, my Yank pals back home are filling up my email box and social media feeds with: “Hey, what gives dude? You … Continue reading Under the Raydar: Two sides of the same krone

Under the Raydar: Postcard from America
Sep 26, 2015 7:00 pm| by Chris C

Greetings from Los Estados Unidos. The reminder from my esteemed editor that this column was due came while I am chasing the wispy dream of songwriting success in Nashville, Tennessee. Yes, I am in the American south. Where traces of barbecue sauce are measurable in blood samples and the giant golden teat of the McDonald’s … Continue reading Under the Raydar: Postcard from America

Aug 15, 2015 7:00 am| by Johan K

15A familiar scene in many films features a family planning their summer holiday. Dad sits at a table covered with maps and colourful brochures from amusement parks, mountain resorts and historic locations.

Under the Raydar: Fiddly dee, DSB
Jun 6, 2015 9:00 am| by Chris C

Okay, it seems kinda unfair that an old salt like me would take shots at the low-hanging fruit piñata that is DSB. Like poking fun at Justin Bieber, it’s just too easy. But … Leaves on line (not time) Since my knowledge of finance is limited to whatever is jingling in my pocket at any … Continue reading Under the Raydar: Fiddly dee, DSB

Here follows an open letter from a reluctant Facebooker. I wish to thank my esteemed editor (in advance) for allowing me to use this month’s column to send a personal message to all of my Facebook (friends)… Time to face it Dear Facebook pals, I am an older guy. I have a Facebook page because all of the marketing gurus say I need one these days to … Continue reading Under the Raydar: Anti-social media

Under the Raydar: The beat goes on
Mar 28, 2015 7:14 am| by admin

My daughter Savannah is a musician. God help her. The poor kid never had a chance.  I have been beating my heart against music business walls for the better part of my nearly 60 years and Savannah’s mom is the best non-performing musician I know. I used to hear her playing a wooden recorder through … Continue reading Under the Raydar: The beat goes on

Under the Raydar: A little less fairy dust
Feb 21, 2015 7:00 pm| by admin

I was doing my pub musician thing at the New Dubliner in Copenhagen last weekend when sometime around 1am, the punters started looking at their phones and whole tables full of previously partying guests made their way to the door. I took a break and Justin the barman told me a second shooting had occurred. … Continue reading Under the Raydar: A little less fairy dust

Jan 17, 2015 7:00 am| by admin

Our journalist Ray Weaver has been living here for most of the past 20 years. Originally a member of the ‘Guinness pipeline’ – that group of expats who make a living annoying the punters at the nation’s many Anglo-themed pubs – he also writes songs, stories and anything else that earns a crust.

Under the Raydar | The joys of the Danish language
Oct 25, 2014 7:05 am| by admin

This being an English publication, we assiduously avoid speaking Danish at every opportunity. Most of us can mumble a few phrases, at various levels of competence, but it really does make your head hurt after a while. The language class took the hangover to DEFCON 5 Choking on pork rind Let’s face it. Danish is … Continue reading Under the Raydar | The joys of the Danish language

Under the Raydar | An American journalist
Sep 20, 2014 7:00 pm| by admin

Living most of the last 20 years abroad, I never really think much about being an American. Sure, I’m proud of my homeland, but I have tried not to let some misguided nationalism define me or prevent me from experiencing life wherever I might be living at the moment. The inherent eagle in Americans, which … Continue reading Under the Raydar | An American journalist
