Back after Mardi Gras and there’s a countdown or two going on.
The program is edging ever closer to a major milestone – 200 programs on March 31st – and then there’s the April/May switcheroo when “Euro Song Countdown” comes on stream at 2100 each Saturday to be followed by the “Not So Full Catastrophe” at 2200.
Catch the ever changing world of the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest at JoyEurovision.com.
