Letters From Kyiv: Dear Television Viewers… Written by on May 5, 2017 | 1 Comment

Settle in as Jon Jacob delivers another ‘Letter From Kyiv’ on the ESC Insight podcast.

Some Eurovision songs trigger my imagination. It has something to do with the scale of the stage they’re sung on and the way television focuses attention on the individuals that sing them. Expect recollections from a painful school concert, plus mullets, Danish jazz, and the inevitable mid-tempo power ballad too.

    I agree with you about Dansevise. If ever I am on Desert Island Discs, I will insist that Kirsty Young plays the song in full. But you must also give credit to the guitar playing of Jørgen Ingmann. It makes me proud to be Danish, even though I’m not Danish.
