The 2017 Barihunks in Bed calendar made quite a splash on Dutch TV's Podium Witteman broadcast, which presents famous musicians and emerging talent on their show. This week, the show featured Dutch soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek and the rising young mezzo Karin Strobos. 

Host Paul Witteman and his sidekick Floris Kortie presented the two divas with their very own copies of the 2017 Barihunks in Bed calendar. Westbroek seemed particularly impressed with March, featuring barihunks Malte Roesner, Zach Altman and Brandon Cedel with dogs. Westbroek brought her own dog (and her tenor husband Frank van Aken) to the show. Also on the show was Dutch barihunk Thomas Oliemans who performed the Neapolitan song "Dicitencello vuie."
