It’s Scary Wogan as veteran presenter launches tirade against…Irish Independent
” He also criticises politicians for being “so relentlessly obsessed with power, and themselves, that it’s very hard to like them”. Actresses who have dabbled in politics, such as Joan Collins and Jane Fonda, also come under attack, with the Eurovision host saying: “Why do people in the public eye have a right to sway the public view? It’s mad. ” The BBC Radio 2 host slams his employer for making Saturday night programmes for people who “aren’t there. for the ‘youf’ in the pub or the club”, but says the “penny has finally dropped” at the corporation.

Why, after all, do many villains in Hollywood speak with upper-class English accents? Michael O’Toole, the erudite and witty Dublin columnist, is, I sincerely hope, still with us. O’Toole would no doubt have something rum to say about the row over the Ray Houghton sketch and the perceived insult Fantasy Football delivered on Irish people at home and abroad. During the build-up to one of the Eurovision Song Contests in the 1990s, a surreal quarrel erupted over a remark made by the BBC’s Nicholas Witchell about the location of the competition. Given that it was held in Mill Street, typical small-town Ireland, he quipped that this year Eurovision was being broadcast from a cowshed. Almost immediately, this innocent aside was seized on as imperialist effrontery and the MOPE brigade came out in the Irish media demanding an apology. O’Toole would have none of it and admonished through his diary in the Evening Press Nick Witchell’s critics, urging them simply to ‘have a titter of wit’. To which I would add in relation to the Fantasy Football row: go out and get a life.

Finland: home of the
Anna kindly asked me to dance and, as I shuffled awkwardly around the dancefloor, whatever kudos my over-eager attempts to impress her with stories of nights in Buenos Aires had gained me were instantly lost. My excuse that the Argentinian tango was very different from the Finnish variety failed to melt this athletic Finnish ice-maiden. As befits a Eurovision Song Contest entrant, the music of Tango Queen Koriseva that night was a little on the kitsch side. The same could not be said of her fellow composer MA Numminen, whom I was soon to meet. His music is more nostalgic, although at times utterly crackers. In a recent CD he attempts to put Wittgenstein’s Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus to a tango beat, crooning in one memorable number that “the possibility of the state of affairs must be written into the thing itself”. But then, strange things happen to those who spend eight years, as Numminen did, studying linguistics at Helsinki University before deciding to become ” a poor troubadour”.

Euro 2004 diaryBBC News
And if the climax to the Euro 2004 final between Portugal and Greece is half as dramatic, the tournament will have a fitting finale. Soft Cell’s “Tainted Love” looked home and hosed as the final votes were being counted. In golfing terms Marc Almond and his musical partner Dave Ball were comfortable leaders in the clubhouse and were trying on the green jacket for size. ut, in a twist that would have done Eurovision proud, a late surge saw The Undertones’ “Teenage Kicks” snatch victory. Cruel indeed on Soft Cell, but a worthy win for Feargal and the lads. The Beach Boys’ “God Only Knows” was third, with “Waterloo Sunset” by The Kinks fourth and “Anarchy In The UK” by the Sex Pistols fifth. The Daily Telegraph’s Henry Winter cut a distraught figure when his brave campaign to have Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” crowned as the greatest single ever came to nothing.

It was bright, undemanding music, and was received with adulation by a large audience, yet I have to confess to having enjoyed the earlier delights of the new music composers more, possibly because they demanded so much of me in the listening. The final work, however, was very interesting: an enlarged Baroque 2000 ensemble was joined by the 14-voice and still more youthful Ars Nova Consort and soloists for Charpentier’s devotional Te Deum. Small by modern standards, yet huge for its time, this brilliant and dramatic work is surprisingly rarely performed, and is probably best known for its opening ceremonial fanfare which has been used for many years as the signature tune of the Eurovision TV network. The work comprises several movements, contrasting full orchestral and choral forces with solo voices accompanied by just a few instruments. Special mention needs to be made of Michel Schneuwly’s superb playing on the piccolo trumpet, a sound which – along with the timps – is synonymous with a golden age of music. Jilly Gooud

Fun in the sun at Parnu’s Watergate festivalBaltic Times
Pop princess Ines will be performing on the grounds of the yacht club, or if you’re feeling funky, go check out Chalice, the hottest thing on the Estonian hip-hop scene at the moment. Head to the Sunset Club on July 16 to dance the night away with electronic act Caater performing live, or come and see Slobodan River the day after. But the most highly anticipated live performance is doubtless that of Peeter Jogioja, the devilish drummer that recently represented Estonia at the Eurovision song contest along with the ethnic girl band Neiokoso. Jogioja’s show “Fire, Water and Drum” promises to give you a whole new appreciation of the power of pagan percussion. The show is scheduled for both nights of the festival, although you will need to wait until it gets dark to really feel the full force of Jogioja’s extraordinary set. But many people come to Watergate not to see jet-skis or live bands – they want to see all the weird stuff that you can do in water. The wacky races of unorthodox watercraft are a long-standing favorite of partying Estonians, and the Parnu festival attracts the biggest and most bizarre choice of them all.

And that’s a statement that doesn’t exactly trip off the tongue. Terry Wogan’s delusions of grandeur There are times when it’s hard to know which Terry Wogan will show up. There’s the genial and reassuringly calm Terry from Points Of View; there’s the baffled and slightly deranged granda from Eurovision; and there’s the slightly more sparky model who appears on chat shows and shows a darker side. But we were rather tickled by his pronouncement in a recent interview that “I’m very happy that I was successful as I was in the ’70s and ’80s, when possibly I was the best-known person in the country, apart from Prince Charles and the Queen”. Steady on Terry – surely you were more famous than the young Prince Charles? And the first item on the agenda? The split, of course The split in the Irish anti-war movement has been coming for some time but, with Bush now gone, it seems they have returned to the Left’s favourite past-time – turning on each other. Not surprisingly, high-profile campaigner Richard Boyd Barrett was in the thick of the action as the Irish Anti-War Movement, the Socialist Workers Party, Grass Roots Network and other groups met in Liberty Hall to see where they had gone wrong with recent protests. According to the unofficial website for the protest movement, indymedia.
