The real France in your ears


You know how you really like French, and to a certain extent the French, but you don’t really want to live in France?

The answer is RFI – Radio France Internationale – it’s like the BBC World Service for France. 106 FM if you’re in Berlin.

Like all the best things to come out of France, RFI is really, really French. So French in fact, that when I was listening this morning I was surprised to hear several songs in a row, rather than the usual furiously contested debates and abstract thoughts on concrete problems. A technical fault, surely? No, a recorded message informed me the station was on strike.

RFI, bringing the true taste of France straight to your ears.
