This week’s show looks back at Iceland, Bulgaria, Latvia and Germany, while looking forward to more shows from Iceland and Germany, along with Denmark, Norway and Cyprus.

All that and a heads up on some music from Keith Mills Andrew Main (All Kinds of Everything) on one of the San Remo singers that could represent Italy in this year’s Song Contest.

    I have to point out that Keith got the heads up on Erica Mou from me so thanks for not giving me the credit.

  2. Ewan Spence says:

    Andrew, post is tweaked!

  3. Seán says:

    Really liked Erica Mou’s song (haven’t listened to the songs coming from Italy yet). I actually thought that you’d play The Canoes from Norway – not because I think it is a fantastic song but it just sounded like podcast material.

  4. Ewan Spence says:

    In which case I’m happy to have caught you off balance with the musical choice this week!
