Radioplayer Eurovision

BBC Radio 2 - Eurovision Pop-Up Radio Service

7th May, 2014

Eurovision fans hold on to your Union Jack hats! Ahead of this year's competition in Copenhagen, we've been working on a project with the team at BBC Radioplayer that will blow your mind. Please welcome to the stage, 'Radio 2 Eurovision' - a pop-up digital radio service to celebrate this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. This will complement the output on BBC Radio 2 and TV networks BBC One and BBC Three.

'Radio 2 Eurovision' promises to satisfy the needs of even the most enthusiastic Eurovision fans and broadcasting begins via BBC Radioplayer from Thursday 8th May. We've got our fingers crossed that they'll get to celebrate our entry for this year, Molly, winning (or at the very least not getting nil points). 

We've been working with the Radioplayer team for sometime now and this project has seen us work with the folks there to give BBC Radioplayer the capability to quickly create pop-up digital services, with 'Radio 2 Eurovision' being the first.

If you haven't already watched Molly perform 'Children of the Universe' then you really should. You're welcome.
