Radio Oh-la-la is unique!
This amazing podcast never fails to cheer me up. Natasha must have a HUGE collection of old (mainly 50's-70's) French music. Try it - you'll love it. Amusez-vous!
Great podcast when it updates. Short and sweet with some groovy french/euro treats. Natasha delivers in a smooth tone,is very informative and cute as well.
It's best sounding after some wine.
