Rix FM launched new Roxette single this morning

STOCKHOLM (UPDATED) – RIX-FM reports that (perhaps with a small about of exaggeration) that all of South America was listening via the Web this morning, when the station played “One Wish” for the first time. “You see, Roxette are really popular in South America,” they report on their site.

  “It’s always fun to meet with Per,” they continue. “We spoke a little about the election [Sweden just elected a new government] and Per had watched the election returns come in on TV and thought the result was expected. Per was dressed for the day in workout clothes, as he was headed for the gym when he was finished with us. That’s what it’s like to be a world star; a world premiere one minute, a workout the next.”

  “Morgon Zoo” is a very popular radio show that can be heard all over Sweden – and all over the world on the Internet – with hosts Roger, Titti and “Miss Sweden.”

  It turned out that the RIX-FM broadcast was not actually the world premiere of the song on the radio, as EMI Germany had sent promo copies of the single to radio stations in advance of EMI Sweden’s previously announced “official” airplay date, and several stations, apparently unaware of the “hold for release” date, went ahead and played the song immediately.
