Live Interview with Franklin Calleja Johnston (Malta Eurovision Song Contest Finalist): In the Corona series of live interviews Radio International - The Ultimate Eurovision Experience is reaching out to a number of artists from the world of the Eurovision Song Contest but also from the national finals.

This week Radio International's Interview Team JP, David Mann, Sadie Trent and John Dawton are being joined via SKYPE by Franklin Calleja Johnston from sunny Malta. Franklin has been taking part in the Malta Eurovision Song Contest since 2013 until 2017 with great results reaching a high of Number 3 in 2016 with the song "Little Love". Then Eurovision Winner 2009 Alexander Rybak from Norway believed in Franklin and wrote him the song "Still here" which came 5th in the Maltese National Final.

In 2018, Franklin entered the National Final of San Marino which was won by fellow Maltese Jessika who then represented San Marino at Eurovision 2018. Franklin reached 5th place with the song "Stay".

Malta's Broadcaster PBS then decided to make the X-Factor Winner represent Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 and 2020 and Franklin took part in the the X-Factor competition 2019 but unluckily was eliminated in the final stages of the competition. Now Franklin wants to revitalise his music career and let's get an update from Franklin on the show this week.

During the live show on Wednesday evening (2000 - 2300 hours CET) we enjoyed a very active chatroom resulting that many requests were also played on the show this week.

Then there is the Eurovision Birthday File, the Eurovision Cover Spot, the Eurovision Spotlight, the Eurovision Calendar Update and Eurovision News courtesy of Plus the best selection of great Eurovision music and new releases by Eurovision artists.
