Adventures in Musicland: Eurovision 2012

From RNZ Music, 1:10 pm on 29 December 2012

Reporter Sophie Wilson presents a travelogue of her time at the Eurovision Song Contest, held earlier this year in Baku, Azerbaijan.

We encounter colourful souvenirs of Sophie’s week there, including an Icelandic broadcaster, a local taxi driver, a Swedish songwriter, a complex network of international fans, and the indispensable knowledge of Roy van der Merwe - the President of Eurovision's biggest fan club who has attended Eurovision nearly every year since 1983 from South Africa.

Produced and presented by Sophie Wilson for Radio New Zealand
