Eurovision Insight Podcast: Eurovision Castaways Live, with Slavko Kalezić Written by on May 30, 2018 | 3 Comments

We’re opening up Île de Bezençon for the summer, and inviting our favourite Eurovision people to bring their best-loved Eurovision-related songs and stories. Welcome to the second series of Ellie Chalkely’s Eurovision Castaways!

Welcome to the second year of trips out to the mysterious Île de Bezençon, where the time is always May, where the sun is always shining, and for thematic reasons you can only bring along eight Eurovision songs and a Song Contest luxury.

We’re going to be inducting the rest of the ESC Insight team and some friends that we’ve met along the way. Before you reach the island, you have to pass through customs, and the watchful eye of Ellie Chalkley, who brought the customs desk to the Lisbon Embassy for a live recording at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest.

Our first guest for the summer of 2018 is Slavko Kalezić, who brings us his Song Contest love story, multiple songs from Montenegro and leaves us in a world of divas.

Keep listening to the ESC Insight podcast as we face the summer months between season. You’ll find the show in iTunes, and a direct RSS feed is also available. We also have a regular email newsletter which you can sign up to here.

    One of my least favorite Castaway podcasts.

    Bringing his own song, concentrating, mainly on songs from 2000 onwards, Cyprus 2018 as one of the songs, not knowing that in 1990 there were no semi finals or big 5( And I suspect that his history knowledge of the contest is really not that much). The list go on.

    He may have a great personality but it doesn’t always make for a great or an interesting interviewer.

  2. Hi @shai – on the contrary, this is one of my favourite Castaways. It’s not all about deep and meaningful, sometimes it’s about having fun with someone with a few interesting stories to tell. The good thing about Castaways is that it’s different every time!

    Let’s agree to disagree about this podcast😀
