Local radio station Mearns FM is the only community radio station in Scotland to receive accreditation by the BBC for Eurovision this weekend.

The station is planning a huge show this Saturday with Stonehaven man Tommy Ferguson at the helm.

Tommy’s Eurovision show will be LIVE in the studio in Stonehaven and Ian Muller & David Holt will be LIVE in Stockholm back stage with all the Eurovision stars including the UK entry Joe & Jake.

Tommy said: “The shows began as a hobby. I was approached by David Holt and Ian Muller, from London about contributing interviews to the shows. They liked what they heard and wanted to get involved.

“So we have been able to feature a host of stars from Conchita Wurst, Brotherhood of Man, Mans Zelmerlow amongst many others. The aim is to interview as many stars as possible, but to also show the fun side to the contest. We broadcast more hours of the Contest than any other station in the world and that is a massive achievement.”

Mearns FM will have a live blog from at www.listenlive.org.uk/eurovision and you can get involved by calling in on 01569 778350, Text 07871052107 or Email studio@meansfm.org.uk.
