    So you are moving outside the ESC Insight entourage now for your castaways? There is hope for us all yet…

    Chris had his first Eurovision memory in 1997? How old do I feel now?

    A nice eclectic mix too – I wasn’t really expecting that selection, to be honest. A really interesting listen comment-wise too.

  2. […] Other things for now: I recently was very lucky to be marooned on the Ile de Bezencon, in ESC Insight’s Eurovision Castaway series. I talked about eight of my all time favourite Eurovision songs and gave a bit more backstory on why I love this contest so much. Go take a listen at their website! […]

    Really good podcast from Ellie and Chris. I couldn’t agree more with Chris’s comment about songs like Rhythm Inside being the future direction of Eurovision.

    First a compliment – When I read who the guest is and on which site he contribute, I was afraid for a podcast full of songs from 2000 onward. It was surprise to hear someone young, that love the contest and actually has a knowledge of old contests.

    @ Martin – Monty from the previous podcast, was already outside the ESC Insight regular contributors. I think Ellie has already covered them all.
    I hope that Ellie will find a way to let the readers to participate in this project too.

    @ Eurojock – I like Rhythm Inside very much, but don’t need all songs to sound a like.Variety is what make it interesting for me.
