The Common Linnets Drive ‘Europe’s Heartbeat’ This Week Written by on June 10, 2016 | 1 Comment

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. This week’s edition features Eurovision favourites The Common Linnets.

During the long summer with no new Eurovision music, ESC Insight will be producing ‘Europe’s Heartbeat’, a weekly 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 best new tracks, hit songs, and classic numbers.

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

Saturday June 11th 2016, 1000 GMT (1100 UK Time).
Sunday June 12th 2016, 0800 GMT (0900 UK Time).
Sunday June 12th 2016, 2300 GMT (0000 UK Time).
Tuesday June 14th 20160700 GMT (0800 UK Time).

As you all asked so nicely, following these times, the show will be available to listen on demand from, which means last week’s show is also available from the website right now.

Radio Six International’s monthly programme guide can be downloaded here (PDF Link) which gives you information on all the shows and the full schedule. Check the syndication list for other stations carrying the show (which is short at the moment, but get in touch if you’d like to carry ‘Europe’s Heartbeat).

I hope you can join me, and I look forward to your comments either here in the comments or via email ( will reach me).

    The true and moral winners of ESC 2014…in all ways! They have had the REAL post ESC success….charts, record sales, concerts, adwards etc…Conchita has never been near their success. Too bad they lost to a bad song……
