"Sommar i P1" revisited

On 26 July 2007, Salem Al Fakir appeared on Swedish Radio P1's "Sommar i P1". This programme is a great Swedish summer tradition in which a variety of Swedish public figures - everyone from politicians and journalists to TV presenters, actors and musicians - present their own radio show, share their memories and play some of their favourite music.

Salem's musical choices ranged from classical music, to jazz, to rock. No surprises there!

It can't be easy to sit at a radio microphone and speak eloquently about your life, but Salem managed to do this perfectly. My understanding of spoken Swedish is still practically non-existent, but I understood little bits here and there.

This programme is still available on Swedish Radio's website and here is the link:
