ESC Covers decide today to ALAN TURBERY from AUSTRALIA to is a true Eurovision collector. Although a big fan and collector of ABBA items, it is not all he has. He wrote a few days ago the following:
This is an example of an expensive passion and collection! And more to come! Written 2 books about the Eurovision in the 70’s, 5 universities presentations, Djaying at countless Eurovision villages, Eurovision Clubs and Cafes, 9 Eurovision podcasts …..
….. My first Eurovision was 1961, my first live one in Malmö in 2013.
I just finished my new Eurovision room.
PS I my first live Eurovision was in Malmö in 2013, I had booked a Scandinavian tour. At the time, the tour guide from Sydney told me that I was not a real fan! I could not sing every song in any language performing that year , nor knew how was dressed a certain singer 5 years earlier! Later I realized there was a difference between a fan and a fanatic!
