The Eurovision Song Contest (On the Radio Times)

Yes folks, tonight is the night we have the final of the Eurovision Song Contest. Personally speaking, I hate the fucking thing, but there you go, there for the grace of God! This is also an opportunity for me to continue with my Radio Times Front Cover obsession and see how the great magazine has covered the contest over the years.

Sandie Shaw became the first UK winner in 1967 with 'Puppet on a String.' The song was chosen by viewers from five sung by Sandie on The Rolf Harris Show.
