If you’re going to be reliving the 2018 Song Contest this summer, why not start an hour early and listen again to our preview show from Radio Six International? 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 2018/19 season and beyond.

For the second year, ESC Insight partnered with Radio Six International in the hour before the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 to preview the show on radio stations around the world. Now you can have the chance to listen again to the show online.

We’ve made a few edits to the broadcast to cut out the full-length music track, but you can still picture the scene. Lisbon… 2018… one hour to go…. 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.

With special thanks to Tony Currie and Radio Six International, Ade Bradley, and Gianluca Allaria.

    For the second year running you completely forgot to publicise this on the day so you can’t have had many listeners! And when I tuned into Radio Six they were playing the wrong show!
