In honour of the occasion, I’m going to let all you anglophones in on a little known secret. FIP, a.k.a France Inter Paris, is a French radio network and it’s hands down my favourite channel EVER!
It was founded in 1971 and is still going strong. It plays “continuous music interrupted only for traffic updates, occasional announcements about forthcoming events, and a short news broadcast at 10 minutes before the hour.”
And get this: there is absolutely no advertising!
It is one of the only radio stations I’ve found that plays consistently enjoyable, eclectic and left field music.
Tune in and régalez-vous!
