All The Eurovision 2017 Tracks… And A Little Bit More!
Hosted by Ewan Spence in partnership with ESC Insight and Radio Six International, ‘Europe’s Heartbeat’ is a weekly programme of great new music, lost classics, and forgotten hits from across the European continent.
During March and April, the show has been previewing the tracks from this year’s Song Contest for an audience that doesn’t follow the Contest as intensely as the team at ESC Insight. A few National Final favourites sneaked into the running orders as well to add a bit more flavour.
All of the shows are now posted on Europe’s Heartbeat’s Mixcloud channel for on-demand listening, so as many of us prepare to travel to Kyiv (and others wait for the in-depth reporting), sit back for a weekend’s worth of preview shows.

Listen To Eurovision On The Radio Throughout May
As well as the podcast coverage here on ESC Insight, we’ll be producing two daily shows for radio syndication.
‘Today At Eurovision‘ is a half hour panel discussion show, and will air at 1830 GMT Monday to Saturday from May 1.
‘Eurovision News‘ is a two-minute bulletin to keep everyone up to date with the major stories from Kyiv, and airs at 2000 GMT Monday to Saturday from May 1, with a repeat airing at 0800 GMT the following day.
And Don’t Forget Our Live Grand Final Pre-Show
Don’t say we’re not trying anything new. ESC Insight and Radio Six will be producing a live radio broadcast ahead of the Eurovision Song Contest Grand Final on Saturday 13 May. Join us in the hour before ‘Te Dem’ rings out across Europe and the world as we preview the Contest, bring you the latest news, welcome some start guests, and get you in the mood for Europe’s favourite TV show.
The Grand Final starts at 1900 GMT, so we’ll be on air from 1800 GMT. You can listen live here on ESC Insight, at Radio Six International, and we might even see if we can rig up a livestream on Facebook…
