Wiwi has teamed up with Song Contest Radio to produce “The Wiwi Show”—a weekly podcast reviewing the hottest news, gossip, and scandals from Planet Eurovision. We talk about Ukraine’s Gaytana. You hear Gaytana’s “Be My Guest.” We talk about Switzerland’s Sinplus. You hear “Unbreakable.” Get the idea? This was our test run, but we’ll be back next week with even more juice (and a less nasally sound)! You can also listen to the show on Song Contest Radio on Saturdays and Sundays—times to be decided. Special thanks to Julian, the music maestro at Song Contest Radio, for sorting this out. Enjoy the music! Love, Wiwi

I stopped listening when it became clear that I had to download all of “Popular” – Again – and wait for it to finish. I know, or can find, the songs already, I’m only interested in your commentary.
