Sweden: The yearly "summer talk"
From the blog "A Swedish Alien in California"
The yearly "summer talk"
Every summer, starting on the day after Midsummer Eve, at 1.05 pm, you can listen to a special summer radio show in Sweden, "Sommar".
It's a tradition since 1959.
You can listen live on the Swedish Radio's website or for us with a 9 hour time difference as podradio when we wake up (unfortunately without the music...). If you think you might forget to turn on the radio, you can get an sms-reminder...
Lot's of interesting summer hosts ("sommarpratare") this year! I'm going to try to catch Filip Hammar and Fredrik Wikingsson's program July 4, they're claiming they're going to do a complete tribute to the United States... And Lena Olin, a Swedish actress living in the US on July 29, and Peter Rost on July 30, a Swedish doctor currently living in the US. Maybe they'll give us an interesting "alien" perspective...
My summer holiday in Sweden is ending July 1, so I'll be able to catch one of my favorites, Jessica Gedin, June 29, live on the real radio!
