I only performed this about three times over the span of several years. I needed a powerful instrumental for the closing. I flipped through the library at the radio station. I thought the National Anthem of Finland was as obscure as you could get (here in the USA). On the last night, a half dozen people stood and put their hands to their hearts. They were from Finland. They were just as shocked as I was. They were very nice about it. I figured it was time to retire the character.
