Radio show, Sommar, has been running every summer since 1959 and is by now a beloved summer tradition revered by Swedish radio listeners. The show is by far the most popular radio show in Sweden. It is considered to be an honor to be asked to host it. Hundreds of well known politicians, authors, athletes, and musicians have made their own Sommar show through the years. Previous hosts include ABBA member Bjorn Ulvaeus, Robyn, music video director Jonas Akerlund, film director Ingmar Bergman, actors Peter Stormare and Max von Sydow, and the best female golfer of all time, Annika Sorenstam.
