Musikguiden (continued)

Hope you've all been enjoying Salem's week as guest presenter on P3 can find links to the shows at as well as the week's playlists and of course some very nice photos.

There were two very, very, very special guests on the show tonight: his lovely wife Caroline and baby girl Greta.  Caroline sounded so natural, calm and professional. (I'm not sure if she has any radio presenting experience, but she was as good as any radio presenter!)  Salem of course also has a very natural talent for presenting both on TV and radio and I wouldn't be surprised if he moves into that area at some time in his career.  Maybe Salem and Caroline could become a presenting duo - they both sounded great on the radio together. 

As for the week's playlists, they're filled with the kind of musical diversity which you would expect.  Loved hearing Bruce Springsteen's "Human Touch" and of course a certain song called "Euphoria" which I think you all may be familiar with :))

I just wanted to share this very nice picture of Salem, Caroline and Greta, which was published on the Musikguiden i P3 website tonight.  A fabulous family!  (picture courtesy of

Sarah Dawn Finer and Salem duet is on the way :)

Sarah Dawn Finer's just posted on Twitter that she and Salem have written and recorded a Swedish-language duet which will be on her new album.

This is excellent news and I can't wait to hear the song.  Sarah is a fabulous singer with a lovely, warm personality, so it should be the perfect combination!

I wonder if Salem's forthcoming collaborations with Petra Marklund and Sarah have maybe inspired him to write his own material in Swedish?  That would be a very significant and important step in his future career as a solo artist....
