An entire day of special a-ha related programming started very early, with Magne appearing on the Chris Evans Breakfast show in the 7:00am hour.

During the show a lucky fan won tickets to the In Concert event last night, and Magne read ‘On this date’ facts.

Listen here (from 00:47:26 in the program, and again at 01:53:16)

The band also appeared on the Simon Mayo show in the afternoon.


A big highlight of the day was when a-ha spoke with Ken Bruce (listen from 01:37:00 into the program or watch here), and performed two tracks from their soundtrack during the show: ‘Under the Makeup’ and ‘Foot of the Mountain’. Here is a picture Magne posted from the soundcheck:

Listen to A-ha's soundcheck for Ken Bruce this morning.
