Wow, what a spectacular show it was this year, with some descent tunes, stunning stage effects and head to head competition. But nevertheless we’re truly devastated as Poland & UK didn’t do that well. So, we’re going to play more Eurovision songs today to cheer us all up.


Another head to head competition is taking place in Poland on Sunday 24th May, as Poles choose their representative in the second round of the presidential elections.

Poles voting in the UK – venues. Bristol based voters need to go to Dom Parafialny im. Jana Pawła II, 2 Arley Hill, Bristol BS6 5PS, the polling station is open from 7am to 9pm.

We also bring you the recent headlines form Poland, look at weird and wonderful news from around the world and teach you a word or two of Polish.

For the next week or two, Poles Aloud turns into “Eurovision Aloud” celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Eurovision Song Contest. We’re playing songs featured in the semi and grand final (the final will be broadcast on BBC1 and BBC Radio 2 on Saturday 23rd May), talking about this year’s contestants and wonder how many songs with the word “love” in its title will we have this year.

Poles Aloud Show – 15th & 17th March 2015

In Britain we celebrate the Mothering Sunday on 15th March this year, in Poland it’s still a while to go before the chocolates and flowers are handed out to mums – Dzień Matki is an annual affair always celebrated on 26th May. Much better weather prospects 😉

Today we’re going to introduce you to a Polish phrase “Matka Polka” (Mother Poland) and try to explain its ambivalent connotation in the Polish language and social life.

Another important date in May this year is Saturday 23rd May – the finale of the Eurovision Song Contest, we can’t wait! Seriously. So, we’re going to discuss the English and Polish entries for this year and what chances they have for a victory (let’s hope better than last year).

All that with our standard blocks “World Weird Web” & Polish for beginners and plenty of music – stay tuned.
