Here’s a great article about Fip from the website slate.fr
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…

It’s sad news I’m afraid (unless anybody knows any better).
You can’t get Fip anymore through the S60 Radio application, since they moved the location of their stream.
Everything we’ve tried seems to have failed 😦
So for the moment it’s au revoir Fip on your mobile.
We’re having a little play around with the website, so please don’t panic if things don’t look quite right. They’ll be fixed soon!
