OGAE or the Eurovision fans club aka Organisation Générale des Amateurs de l'Eurovision was founded in late 1984 in Savonlinna, Finland by Jari-Pekka Koikkalainen. This blogger read about it in a newspaper and joined in in early 1985 (if my memory serves me right) and became the member number 15. Fifteen! Imagine! I still have each and every OGAE Bulletin that at the beginning wee nothing but photocopied pages put together. Then later on I may have had something to do with the founding of the Italian club that's another story....
Today the 43 sub clubs all over the world count nearly 10.000 members. How time flies, how OGAE grows. Congratulations!
