SummerRadio with Spotify founder Daniel Ek

Each year, for as long as I can remember, the Swedish radio channel P1 have been hosting their Summer Radio. It is a daily show during the summer where different celebrities speak about their lives and careers.

I have myself this far only been moderately interested in listening to the show, but summer for me is not complete without having my father sitting in the hammock  in our cottage listening to the radio. This year, however, I intend to join him, atleast for July 12th, when Daniel Ek, the founder of Spotify has been invited to host the show.

He is going to talk about this journey from the computer at school to being the CEO of one of the hippest new companies around!


Second of Advent and Christmas Carols Spotify Playlist

Even if winter has yet to cover the landscape in its white robe here in Stockholm, the count down to christmas continues. Last weeks Spotify playlist with christmas carols had ha sense of reverence over it. This week we kick up the beat a little with some old goodies that never go out of time. Why not listen to the playlist when you bake, decorate or otherwise prepare for christmas?

Here is my second playlist with Christmas carols on Spotify. Click on the image below and you will be redirected to Spotify (requires that you have an account on Spotify).

Happy Second of Advent!


First of Advent and Christmas Carols Spotify Playlist

 Today, the first of four Sundays before Christmas, the holiday season has officially begun. In Sweden it is also called The First of Advent. Advent means arrival, and since the 5th century AD it has marked the arrival of the birth of Christ. Since the 1890′s the custom here in Sweden is such that we light a candle every Sunday during Advent in our Advent candlestick.

To really get into the Holiday spirit I love to listen to Christmas Carols. So this year I have searched through the vast selection of songs available on Spotify and chosen my personal favourites. On every Advent I will share with you a playlist with 10 Christmas Carols, both of Swedish and international origin.

Here is my first Spotify Playlist with Christmas Carols. Simply click on the picture below and you will be redirected to Spotify (requires that you have a Spotify account).

Happy First Advent!




Waiting for spring

Armed with my iPhone and Spotify Premium I took a long walk this morning in the beautiful weather. Even though we are well into March spring is having a tuff time breaking winters hold here in Stockholm, Sweden. It has been a really long winter with constant snow now since November if I am not mistaking. I am quite ready for some warmth, green grass and icecream in the sun. Please come soon spring…..
