Listen to this edition of Radio International - The Eurovision Lockdown

Show  Play List

Due to Corona Pandemic that hit the Earth in 2020 and still forces countries to a total lockdown Radio International has started the second series of the EUROVISION LOCKDOWN which are two extra live shows of Eurovision madness on Saturdays and Sundays for the time of the Corona Lockdown in the United Kingdom that started on Saturday 09 January 2021.

The Team of Radio International - The Ultimate Eurovision Experience thought of easing the tough times with two additional Eurovision radio shows on Saturdays and Sundays. The idea is to entertain the listeners and fans with lots of Eurovision music of the 66 year history of the Eurovision Song Contest plus new music the Eurovision artists have released after their performance in the contest and most of all also the music requests of the listeners and fans.

In the last series from March till June 2020 the show became popular and fans joined JP and the Radio International Team to present themed hours. We would like to continue on this in the second series.  Fans can actively take part in the show to join JP and his team in the studio via a SKYPE phone call live on air to talk about their thoughts and request their favourite song which does not need to be a Eurovision song.

The shows are live via Castlepoint FM and Run FM in the United Kingdom but available also via the Radio International Facebook Group "Eurovision Radio International" where you can find the chatroom. Below are the details and links to the broadcasts. Can't join us live? Don't worry - all the shows will be available as additional PODCASTS via our radiointernational.podbean.com channel or our Radio International Mixcloud Channel.

Join the Eurovision Fan Community listening to the shows and chat with the fans three hours every Saturday and Sunday. The Wednesday editions of the show remains the same as always.


First Hour: 
THE HAPPY EUROVISION HOUR. JP will start in the first hour with some Eurovision Classics, your listener's requests and new material of Eurovision artists that have reached the Radio International Tower of Eurovision Power.  Also revisiting a Eurovision Song Contest and plays five songs from a particular year. Saturday 06 Feb 2021 marks also the official start of Melodifestivalen 2021 and participant Paul Rey joins JP for a Live Interview about his latest entry to the competition "The Missing Piece". He reached 6th place in the Grand Final of Melodifestivalen 2020.

Second Hour:
MY EUROVISION TOP TEN:  Following the first in the series where Eurovision personalities are co-hosting an hour with JP together and to present their ten most favourite song from the Eurovision Song Contest, this week JP is joined by Maltese singer Glen Vella.  Glen represented Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 with the song "One Life" in Duesseldorf, Germany. We are thrilled to find out how Glen's Top Ten of the Eurovision Song Contest looks like.

Third Hour: 
EUROVISION 2021: Since it is the National Final Season to the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 which will take place in Rotterdam's Ahoy May 18, 20 and 22 there is now plenty of time at hand to introduce to the fans the songs from various countries' selection process'. Also this week JP will be joined by Robert Wahlstroem from Gothenburg in Sweden to take a look at Norway's Fourth Semi Final of Melodi Grand Prix 2021 and he also has some favourite songs from Norway for you to enjoy.

Fourth Hour:  
MELODIFESTIVALEN SPECIAL: Not only has Norway a huge national final process but also perhaps even bigger than Norway is Sweden's Melodifestivalen in which the country selects their entry to the Eurovision Song Contest 2021. Saturday 06 Feb 2021 marks the start of Melodifestivalen 2021 with the First Semi Final. Since the songs are still in embargo and cannot be played on the radio until after the Second Chance round Matthias Breitinger will rejoin JP in the studio via SKYPE to present an hour of Melodifestivalen entries that mean a lot to him.  Looking forward to Matthias' choice of Sweden's biggest music event there is.
