Show 20 August 2008

Listen to the Show:        Hour 1     |    Hour 2     |   Play List     |    Hour 3 (RIG)     

ImageThis and next week's edition of the show are rather special. Linda McDonald from the UK sent in a show suggestion in which she suggests that there are actually better songs that should have been sent to the Eurovision Song Contest then the ones that actually have been sent.  So this and next week  "Radio International goes to the National Selection of the Eurovision Song Contest" (Part 1 of 2) and you can compare for yourself if the song that actually was sent in by a country deserved it or indeed the runner up was the better one. A big thanks to Linda for her show idea. Also you can send us your show ideas and we are happy to realize them. Happy Listening!  Click here to listen (Hour 3 (RIG) and Enjoy.
