Blå Måndag podcast interview

Hello, is this thing on? I'm still retired from running this website, but I never stopped caring about Scandinavian music and apparently some people still care about what I have to say on the subject, so check out this interview I did this past summer with the nice folks at the Blue Monday Podcast: https://www.xn--blmndag-fxab.se/43-kalabalik-2019/
I probably should've posted this back when it first went up, but better late than never, right? And who knows, perhaps I will see you at Kalabalik på Tyrolen next year! Otherwise, feel free to keep up with me and my own solo musical endeavor Harsh R.

GBG belongs to you

I don't love Air France, but I do love Göteborg and would move there in an instant if I could, so that's more than enough reason to endorse AF member Joel Karlsson's personal recommendation list for the city: http://www.thelineofbestfit.com/features/city-guides/joel-karlsson-air-france-102151
I'm not familiar with every place he recommends, but I wholeheartedly back Solrosen as one of the best, most friendly and affordable places we ate on our recent trip.
