ABBA and "dansband" - the brutal truth in new radio series

News September 24, 2012

ABBA music as performed by Swedish "dance bands" covered in a new four-part series.

I am going to be the guest in one episode of the Swedish radio programme P4 Dans, which covers the "dansband" scene in Sweden. As part of the show, and on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of ABBA's break-up, there is a four-part series about ABBA's songs as covered by various "dansbands" over the years. Host Thomas Deutgen and his side-kick Thomas Lundin discuss these covers in a light-hearted way together with three guests.

The first part was broadcast yesterday, September 23, and features interview excerpts from two of the guests (not me). The following Sunday, September 30, the programme featuring ABBA guitarist Janne Schaffer as guest will be broadcast, followed by choreographer and dance teacher Tony Irving on October 7, and finally me on October 14.

Listen to the first episode here (the ABBA segment starts at circa 41:20).

NB! The broadcast dates are subject to change.
