Nordic Rox broadcast on Sirius crashed

Written by luke on June 1, 2009 to , and .

NEW YORK - The special broadcast of Nordic Rox on Sirius satellite radio last Sunday failed due to some glitch in the automated system. Per Gessle's concert from London was overlapped with other songs after two thirds of the concert, as well as drowning out parts of the interviews. Sirius apologizes and promises to fix it before the rebroadcast on Wednesday.

STOCKHOLM - EMI Caroline has released a few Gyllene Tider albums in the US – "Gyllene Tider," "Moderna Tider," "Puls" and "GT25!." But it has also released Per Gessle's "Mazarin" and the compilation "Hjärtats trakt." All albums can be found on iTunes USA.

On November 13, "Finn5fel!" and "En händig man" will be released as well.

According to Per this seems to have worked out great for other non-American acts so EMI thinks there's an audience for Gyllene Tider and Gessle in the States. "Amazingly enough, if you ask me, but it's fun nevertheless," Per says.

Naturally we're talking digital releases only.

Caroline Distribution, EMI’s U.S. independent distribution company, was founded in 1983 as a unit of Virgin Records. It has become one of the U.S. music industry’s largest third-party distribution companies for the independent music sector.
