Sorry guys.. French radio is the pits!!!.. as a kid listening to the Light program, with Keith Fordyce, workers playtime and only getting one dose of pop on sunday night.. it was a drag!!.. Then the radio ships came along and took the system by the scruff of the neck and despite the government being the control freaks they are.. tried jamming the stations.. "they are interferring with emergency transmissions".. yeah, so the jamming didn't.. but finally.. they shut them down.. and the Radio 1,2 3,4 sturcture was born.. and took nearly all the dj's from the boats to make the stations modern.. but music is like art.. Dali v's Constable, Van Gough v's Hockney.. different strokes for different folks?.. I am "fortunate".. if you can say that.. in so far as i can listen to radio for much of the day.. and the French stations suck.. Nostalgie have a very limited song play list.. RFM is the same, with a different list but played incessantly everyday.. sometimes i think.. wow!,, they've discovered a singer or band did not make only one or two records.. when in fact they might have 10 albums.. there's no problem with them playing the French music.. they have had a lot of talent and probably still do.. but i struggle to find any station playing a massively diverse selection of tunes.. We have a local station, Radio vallée de L'isle.. they started with a very divesre selection and many English/European language music.. they played indiginous music between 02h and 08h.. so they could have the non stop pop.. but someone must have jumped on them.. and they now play only a few different sounds.. While driving, i find it so hard to find any consistent music stations.. every 20 miles, they drop out and the radio will find yap, yap, yap.. so on goes the cd or usb stick..
What should they play???.. my music base is from Tannhauser, Sabre Dance, to Abba, Black Sabbath, Zepp, Sardou, Mylene Farmer.. and even Halliday.. but while they have the loop tapes with a very narrow selection of records never to be heard on Uk stations [ Supertramp, Ma Baker, and others ].. it not the music, it's the repetive selection every day!!..
Plagerism of music!!.. nicking Pachelbel's canon.. can't believe that.. lol.. so many tunes over time have "stolen" a rift from so many different genre's.. why not?.. some are the most catchy rifts of all time.. applied well, they are fine.. but sorry, i really can't get excited by the thought of listening to some one making bread on the radio.. next they'll be painting a wall.. or maybe as they're cutting the lawn!!..
