In this week's we meet up with one of Sweden's most successful male singers over the past fifty years. He's been in the Eurovision twice, but internationally he is probably best known for the US number one Hooked on a feeling. Since then, singer Björn Skifs has had countless hits here in Sweden, many of which have become evergreens.

Björn, who is still making records and touring, is also behind one of this country's most successful musicals, called Spök, or Ghost. It first hit the stage in the early 80's, and it is now set for a comeback at the Cirkus theatre next Spring, with names such as Lena Philipsson and Måns Zelmerlöw in the line-up. Björn wrote the musical back in the 80's with songwriting partner Bengt Palmers, and back then he also played one of the characters in the show, set in a haunted house.

Radio Sweden's Kris Boswell spoke to Björn about the new version of the musical, how he looks back on over 40 years in the music industry, and what his plans are for the future.
