GPLM! - THE RADIO PROGRAM
"Thank You For The Music!" is the only radio show which pays tribute to the Swedish group ABBA consecutively and uninterrupted for over 17 years, broadcasted by FMCIEN 105.7 Mhz Radio Station, in City of Villa Carlos Paz, Córdoba Province , Argentina.
The unique goal of this radio show has been to promote ABBA and its members as solo artists. Also to promote all the artists involved with Swedish music, as well as all local and international artists who perform and pay homage to the music of ABBA. In this way, our audience can enjoy the wide range of interpretations of different artists from all around the world that shows their admiration to the Swedish group.
Every Thursday from 21:00 to 22:00 pm (Argentinean local Time), we open the microphone to present a timeless music which has captured the hearts of different generations. His host, Oscar Alejo Smirnov, tireless ABBA fan, produces and hosts this radio show to nostalgic and beloved fans of the Swedish group.
This program gave us lot of happiness: from receiving the Agnetha, Benny, Björn and Anni-Frid congratulations through Hanser Görel, its spokeswoman, to being invited to the Premiere of the Mamma Mia! Musical in Broadway. Of course, it is always grateful to account with the active participation of our audience with their company and asking for their favorites songs. Moreover, we receive the support of fans from all over the world who share their information and exclusive material with us.
No business purpose exists in this project, but the mere intention to give to our audience the best-known ballads, hits, songs less successful and those that were not published in Argentina, not only of ABBA, but also its members as solo artists. That’s the key to so many consecutive years on the air, a huge catalog of songs that provide the enjoyment of each one of their harmonies, with continuous new achievements ingredients and news from all around the world. All of this as result of a great and solid worldwide ABBAmania thanks to the music of ABBA.
On September 7th , 1993 marked the beginning of this project and still it is running with the same passion as its first broadcasted day.
Because of too much joy gives us the pleasure to make this program, we just can only say:
ABBA... THANK YOU FOR THE MUSIC!
