Back in 2011 we set up @LoveFip but then kind of neglected it.
We’ve gone to log in now only to find that it got hijacked and has now been suspended.
We’re in the process of trying to get it sorted with Twitter, but not having much luck at the moment.
So, for the time being, please ignore any references to our Twitter until we can get it sorted. If anyone can help us we’d be very grateful.

FIP radio is really one of a kind. I don’t believe I haver ever come upon a radio station that has absolutely no publicity, zero. Its eclectic mix of music suits me perfectly. I personally have a diverse background, although I have lived 12 out of the last 15 years in Paris.
Yesterday, while at work, I heard this song: (it’s actually a poem written by Shel Sylverstein author of “A light in the Attic”, “Where the Sidewalk Ends”, “The Giving tree”……books that marked my childhood and maybe yours too…..)
THE BALLAD OF LUCY JORDAN – Marianne Faithful, 1979
The morning sun touched lightly on
The eyes of Lucy Jordan
In a white suburban bedroom
In a white suburban town
And she lay there ‘neath the covers
Dreaming of a thousand lovers
‘Til the world turned to orange
And the room went spinning round
At the age of 37

In my opinion FIP is as close to perfection as radio stations get, and I can’t recommend it highly enough.
You can listen to it here… just scroll to the bottom of the page and écouter direct.
The songs never seem to have much in common, except that they are all interesting and top quality. The presenters don’t say too much but just enough to let you know they are there at the helm. They’ve got you. Plus there are no adverts. Fantastic!
Warning: it may be a little bit too jazzy for some people’s tastes.
This sums up the love for Fip quite nicely 📻

You may or may not have heard of a little Paris-based radio station called FIP [France Inter Paris]. It’s an absolute joy and I recommend you tune in if you’ve never heard it before. We’ve been listening to it for a while now and it used to be broadcast (illegally) from Brighton 2001 and 2011, before being shut down by the feds, but with the wonders of technology you can now just listen to it through the website.
Click on the play button at the top and a pop-up comes out, playing the wonderful FIP
A perfect example of why I love FIP so much is that they just played Farrell’s ‘Happy’ followed by a French version of ‘Happy Together’ by The Turtles. After a little French chat, we are now enjoying ‘Barranquillerita’ by La Tormenta. Another reason I love FIP is because I don’t like chat…

♫ Notre grand classique

19h to 20h, it jazz fip! Jane Villenet and Charlotte Bibring receive a programmer for an evening where all the jazz intermingle, big standards to emerging artists.
There are certainly big changes ahead and they sound (excuse the pun) quite exciting. We’re quite excited by having more Frédérique (we met her at the live broadcast and have had a soft spot for her ever since :-D). We hope that the legendary Fipettes are still going to be a big part of the sound of the station.
We’ll know on Monday 31st!
If you didn’t already know, there’s a live petition on change.org campaigning for the preservation and development of Fip.
Fip, as we know, faces a bit of an uncertain future and the world will be a sadder place if we lost it.
The petition is addressed to the Minister of Culture and Communication Fleur Pellerin, the CEO of Radio France Mathieu Gallet, Fip Director Anne SERODE and heading up the #FipToujours collective is Philippe Guihéneuf, a friend.
Preserve and develop FIP, eclectic nugget of Radio France!
