Back in the days when The European Perspective wasn’t the international phenomenon it is now (May 2009) one of the show’s most loyal listeners, David Pearson, suggested I put together an episode which presented a sort of alternative Eurovision Song Contest, featuring some great progressive rock tunes from the countries featured in the competition. I can remember I got rather obsessive-compulsive about tracking down obscure prog bands from different countries, and in the end came up with this.
Listening back to it I’m struck by just how crap a DJ I was then. Not that I’m really much better now, of course…but if you could do with a giggle, this might just fit the bill.
Myself, I’ll be watching Eurovision tonight with a few bottles of beer and savoury snack food. It’s a tradition here at TEP Towers, and one which you could do worse than follow!
