News in Luv' land: Marga in Party / Luv' on Radio Extra Gold / Hans van Hemert's B'day / Luv' dolls
* The latest issue of Party magazine features an article about Marga Scheide, following the announcement of her artistic farewell in De Telegraaf on March 24th. The blonde singer will be performing for the very last time at CC De Spil in Roeselare, Belgium, as a guest artist in Piv Huluv's Vinylvreter Show on April 15th. Marga wants a discreet retirement from stage performing without a lot of fanfare.
As always, Party focuses on sensationalism. The celebrity gossip magazine mentions tensions with Marga's former Luv' colleagues (Patty Brard, Ria Thielsch and Chimène van Oosterhout). The weekly publication also refers to the Luv' biopic project. Filmmaker Frederik Nelck is currently developing a script about Luv's success story.
