Ryan Cobb

My first memory of watching the Eurovision Song Contest was back in 2001 and, over the years, my passion and enthusiasm for the contest has very much turned into an obsession. I adore music and I love geography, so this contest is a natural fit for me. If la la loving Eurovision was a crime, I'd certainly be a criminal!

One Comment

  1. Hello Ryan, we are a TV producing company in The Netherlands and I am trying to get in contact with the people that organize the event on the 21th in Amsterdam at the Museum square.
    We are organizing a huge event in the Ziggo Dome around Eurovision song contest and maybe we can do something together.
    can you call me a call asap ? +31610561708
