A certain Euro-compatible voltage of musical excitement and anticipation has been zapping around our headquarters as we begin to envision and to schedule our biggest Web Based Web Event to date.

UPDATE: A date for our upcoming ABBA Week-long Web Event has been firmed up  after nearly five unanswered telegrams from BBHQ to the Ledendary Scando Quartet. It is with great pleasure that we can now announce that this seminal (to some) WLWE ( Week Long Web Event ) will begin pretty soon.

ABBA – the original yabba zabba


ABBA – In the industry, the result of their  inventive approach to the very sound of recorded music became a technique known simply as “Perfect  Production.”


ABBA – Is it true they own Sweden? Find out during our WLWE!!!
