ESC Insight’s Ewan Spence will be taking to the airwaves this summer to host ‘Europe’s Heartbeat‘, a new program showcasing the best music from across the continent. The first show airs this week, here’s how to listen to it.

Building on the success of last year’s ‘Beyond Eurovision‘ shows, ‘Europe’s Heartbeat‘ is a one-hour radio show that airs in syndication around the world, as well as online at Radio Six International.

Each week I’ll be playing the best music from across the European continent, with some familiar names to Eurovision fans as well as exploring some the the best new tracks, hit songs, and classic numbers.

You can listen to the show online at Radio Six International (, You’ve got four chances to listen to this week’s edition of ‘Europe’s Heartbeat show.

    I will certainly be listening. I don’t suppose Ewan is old enough to have heard “Pop Over Europe” which ran on Radio 2 until 1984. That had a similar, though quainter premise. At last a replacement of sorts. It will go down very well in our house, especially now Paul Gambaccini’s wonderful show is ending.

  2. Ewan Spence says:

    Thanks Mark! No I wasn’t away but I’m away down the rabbit hole to see if I can find some off-air copies! As for Mr Gambaccini, I await his ‘Pick of the Pops’ version with keen interest.
