Live Interview with Thomas Forstner (Austria 1989 and 1991): One of the rare occasions when a Eurovision artist returns to the scene of crime as we saw that from Johnny Logan who won the Eurovision Song Contest twice for Ireland, Chiara represented Malta even three times and the very first winner Lys Assia was the Swiss Musical Ambassador even four times. But there are more. In fact, the guest on this week's edition of Radio International - The Ultimate Eurovision Experience represented his native Austria twice.
In 1989, Thomas Forstner performed "Nur ein Lied" ("Only A Song") in Lausanne,Switzerland giving Austria the fifth place — their highest position since their last victory in 1966 and until Austria's victory in 2014 with Conchita Wurst and "Rise like a Phoenix". Thomas Forstner was selected to represent Austria again at the Eurovision Song Contest 1991 in Rome, Italy with "Venedig im Regen" ("Venice in Rain") reaching Number 22. Since his Eurovision participation he released some singles and the latest single released was in May 2021 entitled "Summer Dream" which is right on time for the Summer of 2021.
The Interview Team of Radio International is looking forward to meet Thomas Forstner on the show this week to get to know him better and listen to the stories from his participation at the Eurovision Song Contest and his career beyond.
