In the late summer 1959, Bang & Olufsen sent the popular singer Katy Bødtger, to London to record Bang & Olufsens stereo test record with Decca´s dance orchestra conducted by Eric Rogers. Bødtger thus became Denmark´s first Stereo singer. The melody was based on the "cha-cha-cha" rythm of the time, composed by Sven Gylmark, arranged by Otto Francker with lyrics by Erik Leth.
