Paris Chanson

I'm listening as I write to a great discovery--Paris Chanson:

"Do you love French Classics such as La Vie en Rose, Louise, La mer, Comme d’habitude, Ne me quitte pas...?
Welcome to Paris Chanson, the first and only radio dedicated to French classic songs.

"Paris is undoubtedly the city of light and the city of love. Its image and spirit has travelled the world thanks to the music and lyrics of traditional French singers such as Edith Piaf, Maurice Chevalier, Sacha Distel, Charles Trenet or Charles Aznavour...

"Let yourself be immersed into the golden age of French chanson and rediscover the biggest classics from the last 100 years, 24/7, by listening to Paris Chanson at or via iTunes, Facebook, Noxon iRadio and on your mobile with the Nokia's Internet Radio service.

As Craig McGinty of This French Life writes:

"The site offers you the chance to listen to an internet radio service dedicated to French music and aimed at an English audience.

"You can also detach the audio player from the web page, letting you browse the net with tunes such as Les Feuilles Mortes, by Yves Montand, playing along in the background."

What's on right now? Josephine Baker singing "C'est si facile de vous aimer"!
