Eurovision Insight Podcast: Kyiv 2017’s Live Preshow Written by and on May 25, 2017 | 5 Comments

If you’re looking to relive the Contest this summer, why not relive the hour before and listen again to our radio preview show? Add the RSS Feed to your favourite podcast application, or click here to follow us in iTunes and keep up to date with Eurovision during 2017 and beyond.

Before this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, there was a one-hour preview show from ESC Insight and Radio Six International broadcast on radio stations around the world. Naturally we recorded it so you could listen to it again.

Picture the scene. Kyiv… 2017… one hour before Te Duem starts playing… and as the excitement builds, Ewan and Lisa-Jayne preview the upcoming  show, invite some guests into the studio, and generally get all excited ahead of the Song Contest.

Eurovision Insight Podcast: Kyiv 2017’s Live Preshow

Join Ewan Spence and Lisa-Jayne Lewis and a cavalcade of Eurovision guests including Måns Zelmerlöw, Jon Ola Sand, and Ken Bruce… but there are many more, enjoy the journey. First broadcast on Radio Six International and affiliate stations on Saturday 13th May 2017.

Kyiv may be over, but we have Tiblisi and Lisbon (probably) to look forward to. Keep listening to the ESC Insight podcast over the summer for more Eurovision news, fun, and chat. 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.

    This was great!

  2. Mark Butler says:

    Well I heard it live I thought it was great. You did so well to get all those people. I always wondered if Steve Rosenberg had an affinity with the contest, now we know the story. Please do the same next year.

  3. Martin says:

    So we now know who dressed the most attractive woman in Kyiv this year in a hideous fluffy canary yellow ‘creation’!

    And no-one saw Moldova coming (me neither)…

    A very interesting listen.

    What a great show, guys. I never imagined so many guests, information and entertainment could be packed into one hour. That’s how you broadcast Eurovision. BBC take note. Move over Graham Norton… Okay let’s be more realistic. Move over Scott and Mel. It’s time for Ewan and Lisa-Jayne.
