EUROVISION TONIGHT – WILL YOU BE WATCHING?
Not all of my readers will know what I am talking about, so a quick explanation… The Eurovision Song Contest is a TV singing competition where countries in Europe put forward one entry, which is performed live, then when all the songs have been sung, the participating countries award points to the ones they like best based, usually, on a judging panel and/or telephone voting. It has become a bit political (more than a bit in some cases) these days but it can be an entertaining, if cheesy, evening’s entertainment. The UK TV commentary can be worth watching the programme for just to hear that never mind the songs!
I remember the year Abba won it (1974). I was away for the weekend, canoeing with friends, and we listened to the competition on the car radio (in the ‘olden’ days it was a bit more of a serious competition than it is now). How odd that that memory should have stuck!
