Latin Is Big In Finland (1998 Version)

Stan Freberg here. Finnish national radio presents a weekly newscast all in Latin called "Nunti Latini," or, "News In Latin." Now, a Finnish professor has recorded an album of Elvis's songs, all in Latin...say WHAT??? [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Hard to believe, but a Finnish professor, Yuka Aumont, has recorded a CD of Elvis's songs, all in Latin. It includes such favorites as "Tenere Mi Ama (Love Me Tender)" and "Can't Help Falling In Love," or, "Non Anamari Non Possom." Oh, excuse me (chants in monk-like monotone): "Non Anamari Non Possom." That's better.

The five-minute all-Latin newscast I mentioned, "Nunti Latini," did get a fan letter from His Holiness in Rome. No word yet on whether the Pope has bought the CD, but chances are good. After all, there aren't that many albums of "The King"'s songs in Latin.

Hey! Behind those closed Vatican doors, who knows what the Pope may rock out to?
