Abba's Frida Lyngstad in a Radio 4 drama
Olivier Award-winning writer Christopher Green has written a play about being a fan. He plays himself in the drama, called Like an Angel Passing through My Room. And, remarkably, so does Frida Lyngstad from Abba. The picture above shows the two of them in a Radio 4 studio recording the play and to mark what I am quite sure is a network first for Radio 4, I've pulled from the BBC archive a handful of lovely pictures of Frida and Abba from previous encounters with the BBC.
Like an Angel Passing through My Room is on Radio 4 at 1415 this afternoon. Listen to the play on the Radio 4 web site for seven days after transmission.
