Episode 51: Mamma Mia (ABBA)

Here we go again… with the story of the dynamic 4-piece band from Sweden, ABBA! Leah tells the story from their beginnings as a fun project, to their international explosion to their modern day success and resurgence. Oh also, there’s jelly beans. 

Show Notes and Images

ABBA is a band that has captured millions of hearts worldwide, and led to the most successful jukebox musical of all time. Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad came together to win Eurovision in 1974, and go on to reach a previously unheard of level of fame around the world.

When we recorded this episode in August of 2021, we had no idea that the world of ABBA was about to be opened yet again. On September 2, 2021, one day before this episode went live, ABBA shocked the world by coming out of retirement and announcing their new album and digital concert experience, which you can learn more about here.
