► Ray Moore does Eurovision 

12 May 2017 tbs.pm/12196

Ray Moore opens and closes the 1979 Eurovision Song Contest for BBC Radio 2 via a very variable line from Jerusalem.


A bonus item: It’s 1971 and Ireland is hosting the Eurovision Song Contest for the first time. Terry Wogan is there, ready to commentate for BBC Radio 2, but clearly with very little bandwidth. Someone manages to get a better feed – but one, Radio 2 continuity discover, with no Wogan attached…

Thank you very much for posting this.

I always wanted to listen to pre 1997 BBC radio Eurovision coverage and it seems that almost nothing has survived.
