19 April – Let’s begin to build a bridge

Here's a corker that I know Mr Phil likes. It's from those distant days of 1986, when ice crystals were the order of the day and the nation's crown prince even turned up to watch the spectacle. It was a contest of only 20 songs, with a runaway winner. What more could you want? Apart from a close contest? Or high quality songs? Or a presenter that adds a new lyric to an established piece of music?

Well birthday girl Ingrid Peters was a high point and did a good job for her country. And she beat the other song in German.

Ingrid is 63 today.

Frohe Geburtstag, Ingrid!
