Hello! You've found the internety home of the Scandinavian Love show, well done, what a good choice. For anyone who's found their way here by some unknown force, you have excellent and helpful unknown forces in your life, kudos. This site is dedicated to keeping up-to-date with the goings on of the show Scandinavian Love on Oxide Radio (hey, look, serious LOOK, here it is: http://www.oxideradio.co.uk/), a weekly hour of Scandinavian and Nordic Fun and Love through contemporary music from all kinds of genres. Presented by, well, me (that's Maggie) and Mr Michael Dunne, also of Lazy Sunday fame. Nose around, click on some things, maybe even have a LISTEN via the website on WEDNESDAYS AT 6PM (sadly during during term time only...it is a bit studenty after all...) Peachy.
