When Michael and I road-tripped to the Loire Valley, we both forgot CDs and were stuck with hours and hours of Parisian radio. It is shockingly bad. Most stations don’t have live DJs, but rather set a playlist on an infinite loop. Some songs, we heard probably seven or eight times, which was sometimes maddening.
But on the flip side, some of these stations are so quirky that they surprise you with songs you haven’t thought of, much less listened to, in eons. And the compilation of songs is crazy. For example, listening to the radio tonight, I’ve I heard:
• Woody Allen spoken word
• The Trial, Pink Floyd
• From This Moment On, Sarah Vaughan
• Come to the Cabaret, Liza Minelli
• Austin Powers theme song
