I first heard “Amber Groove” on DJ Swedish Egil’s syndicated dance show, “Groove Radio”, which would air weekend late-nights on WDRE-FM in these parts. In the early 1990s, “Groove Radio” was groundbreaking programming in the U.S., providing the only mainstream outlet for exposure to underground dance artists. I remember Egil commenting that he liked S.A.S. because the act’s name is also the acronym for the Scandinavian Airlines System.
