We’ve had another visitor to the beautiful Île de Bezençon! Coinneach MacLeòid of Eurovision Choir 2019’s Scottish choir Alba joins us to talk about a formative mullet, late 80s video effects, Peak Schlager, singing ‘Spirit In The Sky‘ in Scots Gaelic with Keiino and the role of Going For Gold in European integration whilst commiserating over the Song Contest fortunes of Spain and the United Kindom.
There’s also a Philip Kirkorov/Alla Pugacheva anecdote that may be one of the most piquant ever to grace the Île de Bezençon customs desk. Plus, we talk about how Coinneach and the choir Alba came to represent Scotland as a brand new Eurovision nation.
