Mind you, I did (years ago) fly a PAR approach to Stavanger 36 with the SVG Radar controller giving me heading corrections based upon runway 18. I couldn’t get a word in to interrupt, as the patter was continuous without pauses. I presume they were using 18 for several weeks before I popped up from NWI in an old F27 and needed a PAR approach to 36. After landing, I asked the TWR to pass on my thanks to the Radar controller and suggest he turned his thingy in the control room around to the correct runway orientation. Much laughter in the background. Fortunately I was able to interpret his instructions without the need for an overshoot (as they called it in those days). BTW, the Sola Strand Hotel on the beach was excellent (chef’s training school).
