First time hearing the shoo live. Digging the progs...!

  Sat. 7/14/12 8:07pm Thierry:

Rob, do you know of your sister radio program on France Musique (one of the french national radio channels)?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/14/12 8:09pm Your DJ:

Thierry, I don't know it... my main international world musicky radio source is Germany's Funkhaus Europa. Curious to hear about it!
  Sat. 7/14/12 8:16pm Thierry:

Ok, it's called 'Couleurs du Monde', airs 90 minutes every wednesday night except for July and August. Here is the link where you can check past episodes on the 'Archives' tab:
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/14/12 8:20pm Your DJ:

Thanks Thierry! I will definitely check it out. I use RFI's English web pages for background on artists sometimes, it's really good for that.

Not a replacement for WFMU, you're right Rob! I just allowed myself since it's Bastille day!

True story me and Melissa were walking around 14th street and heard a ruckus and saw th police had cordoned off Irving place and I said "it must be a Bastille day parade" and I had her going until NY's boldest confirmed it was a Con -Ed thingama.

Bon Nuit!
