In English: What is Sommar i P1?

Sommar i P1 is one of the biggest radio shows in Sweden and a staple in Swedish culture. Everyone knows the well-known signature and the show itself. It is on air every year during the summer, and has been ever since its start in 1959.

The show is made up by interesting Swedish-speaking persons who get free hands to create their own hour and a half-long show. They get to choose their own music and what they want to talk about.

Being a host on Sommar i P1 has been compared to receiving a knighthood in Sweden.
