Junior Eurovision Song Contest Interviews - Melanie Garcia and Levi Diaz: The Radio International colleague Alain Forrotti will be out and about in Nice at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2023 to conduct interviews with the young artists which you can hear on Radio International in the days to come. But to gear you up JP had the pleasure to meet two former Spanish Junior Eurovision Song Contest participants Melanie Garcia and Levi Diaz at the Eurovision PreParty 2022 in Madrid, Spain. Levi represented Spain in 2021 with the song "Reir" coming 15th while Melanie represented Spain in 2019 with the song "Marte" coming 3rd. Radio International will air those two interviews on the show this week.

The Home Composed Song Contest 2023 - The Result:  The annual music competition for non-professional musicians for 2023 has decided on a winner through public vote and jury vote. Visit the website of the Home Composed Song Contest 2023 - click here to see the result.

The Home Composed Song Contest is in its 32nd year, this is a competition for Eurovision fans who write, perform and produce their own music, who enter their own original song composition (audio only) and then also take part as a jury, to help choose the winning song. This year there are 27 songs from 13 different European countries.

The Grand Final Results Show of the Home Composed Song Contest 2023 was presented LIVE on this YouTube Channel on Saturday 11 November 2023 at 2100 hours CET with Special Guests from the World of the Eurovision Song Contest being part of the show. In case you missed the show - you can watch it now.


Eurovision Spotlight - Sweden's History at the Eurovision Song Contest:  Sweden will be hosting the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 which will be the 68th contest in its history coming once again from the Malmoe Arena, Malmoe, Sweden on 07 & 09 May 2024 for the two Semi Finals and the Grand Final scheduled for Saturday 11 May 2024. In view of Sweden once again being the host of Eurovision after 2016 the Team of Radio International will look at the history of Sweden at the Eurovision Song Contest that over the years really added amazing songs to the fans' music collections.

Also JP will be joined by David Mann for the Eurovision Birthday File and Eurovision Coverspot. The Eurovision Spotlight is presented by Dermot Manning as the series of Sweden's History at the Eurovision Song Contest continues. It is a Radio International tradition to showcase the songs of the country that will host the next Eurovision Song Contest. So once again it is Sweden following the victory of Loreen for a second time after 2012 with "Euphoria" with the song for 2023 entitled "Tattoo".

Then there will be a lot of the great new releases of Eurovision artists on the show as well as great Eurovision Classics. Javier will be updating us on the upcoming Eurovision events in his Eurovision Calendar and and and....
