With Dutchmen cleverly disguised as Frenchmen, French folks bringing their parents (!), local radio and television personalities, absinth, champagne, cheese and some serious twisting and twirling on the dance floor, the very first Radio Oh la la Bastille Party at De Nieuwe Anita in Amsterdam was a real blow out! Until next time!
It’s bikini time again in St. Tropez, with a young Catherine Deneuve riding the waves!
Stuck in that nasty, stuffy Paris traffic jam? Go franco à gogo with Podcast No. 22! Les Parisiennes want to get out of town like the rest of Paris, down to the breezy Côte d’Azur, while Gillian Hills uses her charms to hitch a ride. Once we get there, suave regular Sacha Distel even scores us a room. Then sexy but shy Dalida is afraid to walk around in her bikini, but eventually does ’cause everybody else is doing it. France Gall falls for some Scandinavian guitar-playing cutie and Marie Laforêt sings that sad yet beautiful song by the camp fire on the beach when the sun goes down.
Bonus! Off the new and modern Maison Close compilation, a real party number by Cucumber called ‘Boogaloo Au One Two Two’.
