Interview with Anna Bergendahl (Sweden 2010, Melodifestivalen 2019): 
Back in 2010 Anna Bergendahl represented Sweden at the Eurovision Song Contest with the song  "This is my life" which unfortunately, did not bring Sweden into the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest halting at Number 11 in her Semi Final. That was the only time Sweden did not make it into the Grand Final in the history of the Eurovision Song Contest. Anna decided to return into the competition once more when this year she entered Melodifestivalen 2019 which is the Swedish selection process to find the song that will represent Sweden at the Eurovision Song Contest. John Lundvig won the ticket to Tel Aviv, Israel this year together with the Mamas and the song "Too late for love". Anna competed in Melodifestivalen with the song  "Ashes to Ashes" which made it successfully from Semi Final 1 to the Second Chance round and then from there to the Grand Final of Melodifestivalen 2019 where she reached Number 10. In August 2019, Anna Bergendahl was invited to the EUROFEST in London, United Kingdom where our colleague from BSR Radio in the United Kingdom had the pleasure to interview her. Courtesy of Martin Palmer from BSR Radio Radio International airs that interview on this week's edition of the show.

Tribute to Karel Gott (Austria 1968):  On 01 October 2019 Karel Gott passed away. He was a Super Star from the Check Republic and before Czechoslovakia from the early 60s. Not only did the Golden Voice from Prague entertain the many fans from those countries but also in the German-speaking countries where he sold millions of records of his music. He even had a string of shows in Las Vegas as an artist from behind "The Iron Curtain". In 1968, he represented Austria at the Eurovision Song Contest with the song "Tausend Fenster" reaching Number 13. Sadly, Karel Gott passed away peacefully in his sleep on 01 October 2019 after a battle with cancer. The Czech Republic initiated a state funeral in his honour. This week Radio International will have a tribute to Karel Gott so play some of his biggest hits.
