Listen to or download this show



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.
