Due to Corona Pandemic that hit the Earth in 2020 and still forces countries to a total lockdown Radio International starts the second series of the EUROVISION LOCKDOWN which are two extra live shows of Eurovision madness on Saturdays and Sundays for the time of the Corona Lockdown in the United Kingdom starting on Saturday 09 January 2021.
The Team of Radio International - The Ultimate Eurovision Experience thought of easing the tough times with two additional Eurovision radio shows on Saturdays and Sundays. The idea is to entertain the listeners and fans with lots of Eurovision music of the 66 year history of the Eurovision Song Contest plus new music the Eurovision artists have released after their performance in the contest and most of all also the music requests of the listeners and fans.
In the last series from March till June 2020 the show became popular and fans joined JP and the Radio International Team to present themed hours. We would like to continue on this in the second series. Fans can actively take part in the show to join JP and his team in the studio via a SKYPE phone call live on air to talk about their thoughts and request their favourite song which does not need to be a Eurovision song.
The shows are live via Castlepoint FM and Switch FM in the United Kingdom but available also via the Radio International Facebook Group "Eurovision Radio International" where you can find the chatroom. Below are the details and links to the broadcasts. Can't join us live? Don't worry - all the shows will be available as additional PODCASTS via our radiointernational.podbean.com channel or our Radio International Mixcloud Channel.
Join the Eurovision Fan Community listening to the shows and chat with the fans three hours every Saturday and Sunday. The Wednesday editions of the show remains the same as always.
CONTENT OF TODAY's SHOW
THE EUROVISION HAPPY HOUR: JP will start in the first two hours with some Eurovision Classics, your listener's requests and new material of Eurovision artists that have reached the Radio International Tower of Eurovision Power. JP will also be revisiting two Eurovision Song Contests and plays five songs from a particular Eurovision year.
EUROVISION SPOTLIGHT XXL: Ten Good Reasons why Morocco should return to the Eurovision: John Dawton rejoins JP in the studio for ten great songs by Moroccan artists which are so good that they could easily have a place in the Eurovision Song Contest. That's why Morocco should return to the Eurovision Song Contest. Back in 1980 Morocco was represented by Samira Ben Said in the contest with the song "Bitakat hob" coming 18th.
Third and Fourth Hour:
EUROVISION XXXXL - The History of Spain at the Eurovision Song Contest: Javier Leal will be closing out the current series of the Eurovision Lockdown as he will be co-hosting the last two hours with the History of Spain at the Eurovision Song Contest.
The Team of Radio International would like to thank the Station Management of Castlepoint FM and Switch Dunmow (Run FM) for giving the opportunity to entertain the many Eurovision fans with the weekend specials and we hope the Eurovision Lockdown shows eased a bit the tough time of the Corona Lockdown period. And also a huge THANKS go to the many fans and listeners for listening, being part of the show, the artists and fans that came on to present their Eurovision Top Ten and also the colleagues of Radio International for their time and expertise.
