Interview with Claudia Faniello (Malta 2019):
After 11 attempts to represent Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest Claudia Faniello finally was given that ticket when she won the Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2017 and with this the trip to Kyiv, Ukraine with the song "Breathlessly". Unfortunately, the song did not qualify for the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 and ended up at Number 16 in Semi Final 2. An Italian version of the song was released prior to the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 which Claudia dedicated to her father. The song's title in Italian is "Perdesi". Claudia Faniello was engaged as the Host for the Eurovision Weekend 2019 organised by OGAE Malta in collaboration with OGAE and EC Germany on 12 - 14 July 2019. Members of the Team of Radio International were on location and chatted with Claudia. Listen to this interview on the show this week.

OGAE FanVision Song Contest 2019 - Interview with Eeva (Finland Pre-Selection 1964):
The funniest entry in the 2019 OGAE FanVision Song Contest definitely came from Eeva representing Finland. She selected a song from the Finnish National selection coming 4th in 1964  -
Pirkko Mannola - "Bzzz Bzzz Bzzz". Eeva made her own version of the song "Piss Piss Pss" and interpreted it very well on stage. During the soundcheck Radio International chatted with the singer which you can hear on this week's edition of Radio International and of course also hear the song. In case you missed the live transmission from Malta and could not listen to this song - enjoy it this week on Radio International.
