FIP Radio

“You’re no longer there, you’re on FIP”.

The concept behind FIP has scarcely changed since its founding: commercial free music interrupted only for traffic updates, occasional announcements about forthcoming events, and a short news bulletin at 10 minutes before the hour. Long limited to 7 am-9 pm, the current live broadcasts are from 7 am-11 pm, after which a computer replays a selection of the music broadcast earlier in the day. Live programming is broadcast from Paris. FIP’s local studios are based in Nantes, Strasbourg and Bordeaux.
