Hi! Alexander Rybak is with you on the Radio 7, this is the show “My music – my life”. I’ve heard a lot of music in my life. I remember my first melody which my mother bought me when I was young:)) It was “Ooops, I did it again” by Britney Spears. When I was a child I only listened to classical music so I was surprised a lot by the fact that my mother bought me pop-music. I didn’t expect that she would invite me to this world, because she always forced me to practice. So Britney Spears “Ooops, I did it again” is my very first pop-song. Let’s listen to it with me now.

Report on the birth of the BOOK and the concert in Oslo, Oct., 10th ’09

“The Operation 10/10
or
how Rybak’s Facebookies went to Olso”
a report by
Irena Bay

Part 1

Well guys, I think it’s time for me to report back to the grid… to be honest I don’t feel that I will be able to put into words what I have experienced this weekend with these indescribably wonderful people … I know my account will fail to convey what really happened … still – I am a FB spy on duty, night and day, and I would never let you down! 😀

My story begins way earlier than the most stories you have read here until now[1]. My story began in July this year when out of the blue I found myself organizing and directing a facebook project – how the hell did that happen again?? (And why I am working on the new one in my head like crazy again since yesterday??)
