    Fantastic podcast and interviews, Ewan. I agree that the BBC and Sam Ryder played a blinder with the UK entry this year. As for Radio2 always being behind the contest, for all their hours of ‘Eurovision’ content, I’m still waiting to hear a 3 minute version of any of the other country’s songs.

    Will Sharleen be reporting back from her trip to ASC? Following on from the Christer and Ola interview there is so much to talk about.
