My favorite French Radio Stations
Classic singers and tunes from the 30's - 70's
For advanced listeners but exploding with interesting topics
Thanks for these!
I have been meaning to ask if anyone here knows a French equivalent of BBC Radio 4, which is my favorite radio station. I tried BFM Radio which had been recommended here, but found it a bit too hectic. I am looking for something with "deep" and calm analysis and discussion, not only focused on news but also including interviews, etc., but preferably not music.
I just started listening to France Culture, and it sounds very promising ... I have to focus, but am getting the gist of the conversation.
For news and conversation you can't go past RFI. http://www.rfi.fr I listen to it in the car on the way to work on an app.
The best thing about Nostalgie (apart from the music) is the ads. The only time I have enjoyed listening to ads because you pick up common words, they speak a bit slower, and you really learn your numbers (telephone numbers!!)
I also listen to some french singers on Spotify such as Florent Pagny, Ben L'Oncle and Garou.
