Dear listeners, unfortunately, by mid-week three of our team were afflicted by a flu and we were forced to abandon our live-on-site work in Vienna, Austria. In case you’re missing some interviews and photos of your favourite 2015 Eurovision act, we’d like to apologize.
Obviously the playlist remains unaffected by this, and tonight, Saturday 23 May, at 21.00 CEST, ESC Radio will broadcast the Grand Final of the 2015 Contest live from Stadthalle Vienna. Stay tuned for the music of the Eurovision Song Contest and tonight’s Grand Final – may the best song win!
