Jimmy Martin

The tiny duchy of Luxembourg was one of the original seven countries of the Eurovision Song Contest, and despite their size they held their ground very well, often with artists invited from other countries. In total, they managed to accumulate an impressive five victories before they retired from the contest. Today, we will be talking to their last ever entrant - Jimmy Martin - who participated for Luxembourg in 1993 as a composer and as one half of the duo Modern Times.

Jimmy has been composing and singing hard rock for most of his life, he wrote the entry "Donne moi une chance" with Patrick Hippert who had done Eurovision before, and he formed the duo together with Simone Weis.

Hear him tell us about why his rough outfit clashed so with her expensive dress, how he ended up here and why Luxembourg never participated again, and also about what this still active musician has been doing since, and with which famous artists he has collaborated.
