Attention! French Radio London calling
The Ambassador of France to the UK, Maurice Gourdault-Montagne, hosted a party at his residence to launch French Radio London. His Excellency kicked off live broadcasting at noon on November 17.
At FRL's début, which was attended by the leading lights of London's French business fraternity as well as many Francophile supporters, FRL's CEO, Pascal Grierson said: "We are enormously grateful to the Ambassador for his generosity and his support for FRL. This shows that the arrival of FRL in the London radio scene is a truly significant event. Being the unique new French voice for London, I guarantee FRL will offer something for everyone."
Expanding further about FRL's output, Pascal Grierson adds: "An easy-to-listen-to, diverse selection of French music will comprise 80% of FRL's output. The remainder will be made up of news, sport, culture, politics, chat and high profile interviews - a mélange of music and information the 400,000 London-based Francophones, and the many Francophiles, are yearning to hear."
FRL has already secured interviews with the likes of Ingrid Bétancourt, Carlos director Olivier Assayas, Rwanda genocide survivor Leah Chishugi, and many more.
