Welcome to ESC Radio
We proudly present ESC Radio with the most Eurovision Song Contest hits.
While working on a Norwegian musical, due to be premiered next year, Norway’s 2009 Eurovision Song Contest winner Alexander Rybak (Fairytale) released a music video as “a gift for the best fans in the world”, as he puts it on his youtube channel.

Other tracks recently added include releases by Cascada with Robin Stjernberg (Germany/Sweden 2013), Witloof Bay (Belgium 2011), Sinplus (Switzerland 2012) and Magdalena Tul (Poland 2011).

Just like last year, Switzerland, one of the seven countries competing in the very first Eurovision Song Contest in 1956 and first winner (Lys Assia, Refrain), starts the season of national pre-selections here on ESC Radio. Over the past few weeks, artists submitted songs and videos to Swiss broadcaster SRF for an online voting, the first stage in the country’s effort to find a suitable candidate for the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest to be held in Copenhagen, Denmark, in May.
From today on, we have included songs from the Swiss selection in our playlist. Internet users and Eurovision fans will be able to vote for their favourites from 4-18 November on the broadcaster’s internet platform at http://www.eurovisionplattform.sf.tv/
Tune in to ESC Radio and check out the competing songs!
