    A few years ago I found at a library sale a CD of German Eurovision hits from 1958 to 1983. I particularly like this one from 1978 by Irene Sheer.

    Growing up in the 70s and into the 80s and 90s I would watch Eurovision and generally enjoy it. Later on, I would view it for Terry Wogan's wonderful commentary and scoring--the interactions between presenter and each scoring panel representative could be very funny. Since Terry Wogan's departure from Eurovision I haven't bothered watching.

    Firstly, the UK is currently still a member of the European Union (EU), and will remain a member for some time yet. If the Government goes ahead with the Brexit (and, so I read on various media sources the last couple of months the June Referendum result is not legally binding), it will take at least two years to get out of the EU, including invoking Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty. Again from what I can gather I have a vague inkling the other EU countries could block that.

    If and when the UK does eventually leave the EU, the UK will still be able to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest. The BBC will still be a member of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), which is a separate organisation to, and (to the best of my knowledge) has no connections with the EU.

    Several countries which took part in this year's Eurovision Song Contest are not EU members, but have broadcasters which are active EBU members: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia & Herzegovina, F.Y.R. Macedonia, Georgia, Iceland, Israel, Moldova, Montenegro, Norway, Russia, San Marino, Serbia, Switzerland, Ukraine.

    Australia, which is an associate member of the EBU, also took part but I think they required a special invitation to be able to enter.
