In this episode of That Eurovision Podcast, we travel to the decade of shoulder pads as Angus, Isabelle, and Helen revisit Eurovision 1980. They discuss their favourites, Morocco’s participation, why the Netherlands hosted, and what the BBC and EBU can take from the last time the winner did not host. As for the tweets about historical reporting Angus cites, you can read the main thread @MrJDSworld by clicking here.
