Monty Moncrieff

Monty’s Eurovision fascination dates back further than it’s safe to think about: he saved his kisses for you first time round. Since then it’s influenced his friendships and his annual travel itinerary and diminished none of his enthusiasm. With Second Cherry Monty even found a way to have his own Fantasy Eurovision.

Matt Baker

Matt is Editor and Features Leader at the popular Eurovision news website, Having covered the world’s biggest music contest on the ground, it was only inevitable that he should find himself entering the world of podcasting. If it wasn’t Sonia singing “Better the Devil You Know” that got him hooked on Eurovision, then it was the Gina G banger “Just a Little Bit“. In recent year’s, Matt has been following national finals all around Europe. The Second Cherry podcast is a step forward on that Eurovision journey.
