Eurovision Insight Podcast: Eurovision Castaways, with John Paul Lucas Written by on August 28, 2017 | 3 Comments

Île de Bezençon… an island where all you can bring is eight Eurovision songs and a luxury, if you can get them over the border. As the summer stretches out, John Paul Lucas is the island’s next visitor on Eurovision Castaways, the ESC Insight summer podcast series. 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 the summer of 2017 and beyond.

After a short ‘in real life’ break, it’s time to return to the Île de Bezençon for the next episode in ESC Insight’s summer series. Everyone needs music on holiday, but because of some rather exquisite border rules, guests to the island can only bring eight Eurovision records and a luxury with them… and you need to get them past customs.

Ellie Chalkley is still on border duty as John Paul Lucas remembers Malta, near-death experiences, and the wrong type of Eurovision fan.

    Great episode – a nice mixture of what many would consider mainstream and the less well known. It’s great to hear someone choose Euphoria and have a reason for doing so…

    Welcome back Eurovision Castaways. You had been away so long I was starting to think Nigel Farage had staged a coup on Ile de Bezencon and introduced a tough new immigration policy. Thank you John Paul for introducing me to some songs (Norway 1966, Poland 1995, Israel 1983) that are at least worth a second listen. I’m also intrigued by Belarus 2005.

    I had to present a song I liked in German class at school and explain why I’d chosen. I played Justyna. It didn’t go down too well. Happy to find another fan of it!
