An Xtra Happy Birthday; May 9th!

Yesterday on 8th of May, four Eurovision singers had a birthday including two winners. Today, however there is on birthday boy. His Eurovision song was quite political and spoke about nuclear bombs. Timo Kojo was born on this day.

Kojo, 65

In 1982 Finland selected the song “Nuku pommiin”, that means Ban the Bomb. But at the time nuclear war could have been a possibility in Europe. Unfortunately the song did not get any points. However maybe it was successful since a nuclear war in Europe did not happen. This is one of the three entries from Finland that has gotten 0 points, the other times were in 1963 and 1965.
We all here at escXtra would like to wish him the very best on his special day!
