Ralph Siegel 75 years part 2
The greatest composer in the history of Eurovision turns 75 years, which we celebrate by inviting him back to the podcast. Emil and Ralph spoke for an hour five months ago, but this true legend has made so much great music that there is a lot more to listen to and to say. This time we dive a little deeper into the songs that didn't make it to Eurovision, since Ralph has competed lots of times in preselections across Europe, so much that there sometimes has been some envious backlash towards his dominance, not at least in his home country of Germany. Mr. SIegel is, despite his age, still as sharp as ever, and is currently enthusiastically working on a life-long dream, the musical "Zeppelin" which, if all goes to plan, will hit the theatres in 2021. Ralph himself celebrates his birthday by, among other things, releasing a comprehensive CD box with over 200 of his songs, and has generously donated ten of these to the listeners of Eurovision Legends.
To have a chance to win one of these you must share this episode publically on your social media using the hashtags #eurovisionlegends and #zeppelindasmusical, and maybe tag a couple of interested friends while you're at it. More information about this in the episode.
In this second part we continue from 1998 up until today
