Looking for good french "college radio" stations

The equivalent in America would be KXLU (especially) or KEXP. Stations where students play underground/independent music, unknown stuff. Sometimes you'll tune in and hear garage rock, sometimes it's just ugly noise, you never know what you'll get.

Assuming these exist in France, what are the good ones? I found a station that claimed to be "indie" and they were playing Aerosmith when I tuned in. Not having much luck on my own :)

Examples of french songs I've been digging on Spotify:

Dany Placard - "Full face" L'impératrice - "Erreur 404" Ponctuation - "Fleur"

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radio_Campus_Paris is the closest I could find, for posterity. The show Planet Claire is basically what I was looking for. Francophone (only) underground music. Too many French stations just play English music.

The "La Souterraine" compilations are also a good place to start.
