Eurovision Song Contest with Radio International.
ImageThis week the series of Radio International Goes ...to the Eurovision Song Contest 2009 continues in our third hour. In this sixth part of the series we talk to Hadise from Turkey who reached Number 4 with "Duem Tek Tek". We also interviewed the Lovebugs from Switzerland who performed "The Highest Heights" unfortunately, failed to qualify for the Grand Final. Last but not least we had the big pleasure to talk to Graham Norton who has taken over the job of commentator from Terry Wogan who has been doing the Eurovision commentary  for the BBC for 35 years. All this is spiced with the best of 2009 Eurovision Song Contest entries and some special remixes as well.
