Eurovision Insight Podcast: Game On! Written by on September 7, 2015 | 2 Comments

With the mythical ‘September 1st’ deadline now passed, the community has declared that the 2015/16 Eurovision season is now under way. Not that there’s much noise from those in charge, after all there are submission periods already open (and the Danish process closes today) so there’s lots of work going on towards the Eurovision Song Contest 2016… which is where we’ll start today’s podcast, covering the details of both the upcoming Adult and Junior Contests.

Unfortunately there’s nobody jumping out very loudly on social media to promote the song they have entered for the May 2016, so the ‘first song of the season’ is going to have wait a little bit longer – so let’s turn back to one of the great lost tracks of a previous NF season to remind us of the gems that await us.

Game on, indeed.

Eurovision Insight Podcast: Game On!

The mythical date has been passed, and the ‘on-season’ of Eurovision 2015/16 is under way. The first podcast of the year kicks off with the basics, who’s entered so far for Adult and Junior, National Final dates, and  a blast from the past with music from Ultra Nate.

As the new Eurovision season starts, you can stay up to date with all the Eurovision news by subscribing to the ESC Insight podcast. 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.
