|Filmed||3 September 1967|
|Location||Stockholm, Sweden (WHERE EXACTLY?)|
|Broadcast||LIVE, 3 September 1967, SVT1 19.20-20.40 (and aired again in September 1998)|
|Released||This performance was included in the Frida Box Set released on 5 December 2005.|
Frida's first TV appearance. She had just won the Nya aniskten ("New Faces") the competition at Skansen, Stockholm with "En ledig dag" (A Day Off) and was then whisked off to the TV studio to appear on this programme as part of the prize.
This clip is priceless. She's so shy and timid and yet when she starts to sing all that is lifted. Apparently the high note she reaches is an 'E'.
This programme was a special, extra-long, edition of the regular Hylands Hörna (Lennart Hyland being the host, hörna meaning 'corner'). This was the day that Sweden switched from driving on the left to the right and the programme had lots of other guests to entice people away from the roads during the changeover.
|Watch Out For||The look she gives someone off camera as she's obviously been advised to drop the microphone away from her mouth a little to give a better sound. The twinkle she gives them is fantastic as she realises they were right!|
Lennart Hyland: By car direct from
the Barnens dag (Childrens Day) Contest, without any rehearsals, without having
met the orchestra ... Here comes the winner of today's contest. She came and
gave some notes to Leif that he didn't understand. They tried and talked. Can
you play this now?! Is it you or Bengt who will play this? Both of you! Here
comes the winner of today - Anni-Frid Lyngstad! Congratulations! It has been a
very exciting day!
