30 April – We were three kids and a lovin’ mum

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

We need to bear in mind that part performance is no guide to future performance. Some countries win, completely out of the blue, and then sink back into obscurity. Or a country could have one really bad rogue result amid a clutch of good ones.

That brings us to the Big 5, well the German bit of the Big 5 anyway. They were big hitters in years gone by, but fortunes have generally changed since the semi-finals. A rogue result perhaps? Well, maybe, but today’s birthday boy Michael Schulte came fourth in 2018. Another rogue result, or the precursor to a resurgence of Germany’s fortunes? In his favour, Michael scored a maximum 24 points from both Denmark and the Netherlands, and lots of points from all over Europe (and Australia). Fair play to him, and ongoing proof that anyone can do well in the contest if they put the thought in.

Michael is 34 today.

Frohe Geburtstag, Michael
