Title: The European Perspective #25 revisited - Eurovision!
Post by: AmazingWilf on May 19, 2013, 07:28:20 PM

Back in the days when The European Perspective wasn't the international phenomenon it is now (May 2009) one of the show's most loyal listeners, David Pearson, suggested that I put together an episode which presented a sort of alternative Eurovision Song Contest, featuring some great progressive rock tunes from the countries featured in the competition. I can remember I got rather obsessive-compulsive about tracking down obscure prog bands from different countries, and in the end came up with this.

Listening back to it I'm struck by how crap a DJ I was then. Not that I'm really much better now, of course...but if you could do with a giggle, this might just fit the bill.

Myself, I'll be watching Eurovision tonight with a few bottles of beer and savoury snack food. It's a tradition here at TEP Towers, and one which you could do worse than follow!

You wouldn't know one way or the other - you were probably boycotting even when this was aired for the first time.
