Radio International Goes.... (Third Hour)       
Image(07 January 2009) This week Radio International goes to the Eurovision Song Contest of 1998 including an interview with the Winner of that particular year - DANA INTERNATIONAL who won with the song "Diva". This special performance caused lots of controversy as Dana International - as a transexuelle represented Israel. This also saw the start of  the change of the Eurovision Song Contest, the joining of many more countries, the change of music styles and performances and also the increasing number of viewers.

ImageRadio International had the pleasure to meet and interview Dana International at the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest as she wrote the 2008 entry for Israel - "Ke'ilo kan" performed by Boaz Mauda. The song reached Number 9 in the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest.
