Stand by for Eurovision!

Following a period of illness, Ewan Spence and ‘Europe’s Heartbeat‘ returns to cover the build up to this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, which takes place May 8/10/12 in Lisbon.

We’ll have six preview shows, bringing you all the songs that will be taking to the sun-drenched stage on the shores of the Atlantic, as well as the usual look at the National Finals and some of the songs that just missed out on the ticket to Portugal.

The first preview will air at 1200 GMT on Radio Six International before going into syndication, and you’ll be able to Listen Again to the show on this website from Tuesday 10th April.
