Björn to be a host on Swedish radio programme
Not many details are forthcoming from the radio station’s website apart from some facts about Björn and a photo of this year’s hosts (I think!). Hopefully, there are some more details to follow, like the fact that the organisers have been trying to get Björn as a presenter for years! Among other topics, Björn will discuss the memory loss that afflicts him.
