French radio

Why listen to French radio?

At least 40 percent of the music on private French radio stations must be of French origin.

That’s the measure decided by the French government to preserve French culture.

And that’s great news because it means you can listen to French radio knowing you’ll hear a fair share of French songs.

Whether you’re looking for great French music to listen to or would like to improve your listening skills, there is a French radio station for you!
