What Is Eurovision?

Eurovision is...

A part of global music history.

Much more than just an annual international song competition, Eurovision has become a cultural phenomenon and a huge lavish extravaganza.

Eurovision is...

the biggest festival of its kind

Once dismissed as a cheesy and somewhat amateurish event, the modern day experience is viewed each year by around 200 million people worldwide.

Eurovision is...

A platform for artists

The contest provides a profile boost for new acts and also attracts established names to perform in front of its massive audience.

Based on the Sanremo Music Festival held in Italy since 1951, Eurovision has been broadcasting every year since its inauguration in 1956, making it the longest-running annual international television contest and one of the world's longest-running television programmes.

What Is The Eurovision Show?

The Eurovision Show is a weekly radio programme, designed to celebrate the music of Eurovision past and present.
Not just annual winners and some of the more famous entries you might be familiar with, but other lesser known songs from throughout Eurovisions six decade history are played. There's also the latest news each week from the Song Contest World, plus brand new music from past Eurovision artists - some of whom drop in for a chat from time to time!

The Eurovision Show is the brainchild of experienced radio presenter & long time dedicated Eurovision follower Simon Harding. It is a programme designed both to sate the appetite of existing fans and to entice a new generation of interest.
