Yaaar me hearties! We might be a little late for International Talk Like A Pirate day, but that hasn’t deterred your fan favourite selection this week. In contrast we have new music from a chatty Polish DJ, and we’re off to the Mediterranean for our Triple Play…
Malta has participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 34 times since its debut in 1971. The contest is broadcast in Malta on the PBS channel, TVM. Malta has yet to win the contest, but is the only non-winning country to have achieved four top three results. Malta finished last on its first two attempts in 1971 and 1972, and had a 16-year absence from the contest between 1975 and 1991. Upon their return they participated every year since. Their return proved more successful, reaching the top 10 in 12 out of 15 contests from 1991 to 2005, including third-place results for Mary Spiteri (1992) and Chiara (1998) and second-place results for Ira Losco (2002) and Chiara (2005).
