Agnetha, Björn and Benny appeared on this programme hosted by Leonard Eek (who went on to produce Made In Sweden For Export in 1975 and ABBA-dabba-dooo!! in 1976).

Agnetha sang at least two tracks including Kungens vaktparad and Jag vill att du skall bli lycklig both from her (then) forthcoming album När en vacker tanke blir en sång.

Note: Gallery picture 1 may not be "as per the broadcast" but just a picture taken of them at the venue.  The second gallery picture shows producer Bosse Larsson (on the left) and Leonard Eek (the host) between Agnetha and Björn.

They also filmed Gammeldans från Bollnästorget on the same day but this time without Agnetha.
