* Corné Klijn and Jan Paparazzi will interview Marga Scheide on their show, "De Weekendborrel", on AVROTROS/NPO Radio 5 on May 19th between 4.00 pm and 6.00 pm. Marga started her music career in late 1976 when she became a member of Luv'. Last year, she gave a farewell performance in Belgium. The singer wanted a discreet artistic farewell without a lot of fanfare. As the owner of the Luv' brand, she was part of all the the group's line-ups.

The latest issue of MAX Magazine features a short article about Marga's forthcoming radio interview.
* The latest issue of Privé magazine includes an article about celebrity family feuds (involving heirs of Niki Lauda, Jan des Bouvrie, André Hazes, Michael Jackson, Johnny Hoes, Udo Jürgens, Johnny Hallyday, Robin Williams, Karl Lagerfeld and Amy Winehouse). José Hoebee (née Van de Wijdeven) is also mentioned in this article. The ex-Luv' singer and her sisters, Marijke (who passed away in 2020) and Yvonne, had not been on good terms for years due to inheritance issues after their parents' death.
* José recently gave an interview in English on "History Repeating", a radio show on SpiritLive (a web-streaming broadcast station) hosted by Ryan Gray, a Canadian student of the RTA School of Media at Toronto Metropolitan University. This interview was posted on May 11th on YouTube.
The artist discussed her incredible career, from Luv's creation in late 1976 to the group's definitive break-up three years ago. The program focuses on the trio's glory years (1977-1981) and José's solo work and duets with Bonnie St Claire covering ABBA songs in Dutch in the 1980s. In addition to Luv's signature songs "U.O.Me", "You're the Greatest Lover", and "Trojan Horse", other lesser-known tracks are part of the playlist, including "I.M.U.R", "Who Do You Wanna Be" and "Mother Of the Hearts".
