  1. We get press releases? Cool! 😀

    This interview/show looks interesting, I hope they feed us with something new! Despite it probably being recorded right after the tour, before Marie and Per went into their holiday break. 😉

  2. Can’t wait for Sunday. It’s funny though that on Nordic Rox website, the latest news still from Jan 2009. Maybe it’s about time for them to update it.

  3. Just heard and recorded the show. Regarding the new album, nothing really new that we didn’t know about. Still, it’s great to hear an interview with Marie. I think they interviewed them separately. The host described the interview with Marie as “rare”.
    I still LOVED the interview though 😉
    They played all the songs that Roxette played in NOTP, except IMHBL. Marie’s vocals in Listen To Your Heart still blows me away.
    They also played Anyone, CBB, Spending My Time, Opportunity Nox, It Must Have Been Love (the album version), Kissing Is The Key and Kix.
    The host made a mistake by saying “Anyone” is from Room Service, the latest Roxette release.

  4. Forget to add something:

    Marie said that the first nights of NOTP, her performances was awful (or bad? forgot which word) because she had terrible cold, but after that she was just so happy.


    It’s pretty big because this is the whole 3 hours show. But if love Scandinavian music, then the other non Roxette stuff could be a great bonus 😉

    At the beginning you might heard Bob Dylan (because I started taping when his show still on), then at the beginning of Nordic Rox, it’s a bit static because I lost the signal, but then everything’s fine (I think!). So Enjoy.

  6. Thx so much for uploading the whole broadcast, Majdy! I uploaded a version with only the Roxette special parts (same as on Run to Roxette) & posted it on here, but it seems that only your post got validated *sniff* ;-(

  7. Thanx!

    Shirley, that must have been the automatic spam protection. It’s there now!

    Edit: But Mediafire says the file isn’t available at the moment… 😉

  8. Probably the server is busy 😉 but just let me know if anyone wants the whole thing and it’s still doesn’t work, I’ll think of some other way 😉

    (You’re welcome, Shirley and everyone)
