Gyllene Tider

TDR’s Evensson guests on Stockholm radio program

STOCKHOLM - Being recognized as somewhat of a Gyllene Tider "expert," The Daily Roxette's Thomas Evensson (tevensso) appeared on a Radio Stockholm show yesterday.

  With more than 300,000 listeners daily, the station is Stockholm's biggest radio station. They had a Gyllene Tider special on a show called "Viktors vänner" ("Friends of Viktor") as a warm-up before the second concert at the Stadium.

  The show lasted two hours during which Thomas and the host, Viktor Petrovski, discussed different aspects of the Gyllene phenomenon.

  Among other things, the opening acts were discussed. Viktor's opinion was that The Latin Kings were a good choice while Thomas' opinion differed… to say the least.

  Tobias Persson, the director and writer of "Flumeride" was interviewed and he gave his perspective of GT and Roxette. Viktor asked if Thomas had seen and liked "Flumeride", which he had, and did. "You can see it's made with love, it's a great short film," Thomas stated.

  There was also a phone-in with Anders Herrlin who was goofing off and taking in Stockholm's wildlife while waiting for the soundcheck to begin.

  Viktor and Thomas decided that the frontman of Gyllene Tider actually is Göran Fritzon, the Farfisa Guru. They also agreed that "MP" Persson plays the guitar like no other.
