Tropo 05/12/19 - France during national strike

Post by Mad Radio DXer » 05 Dec 2019 13:23

Usual France here, although Culture are playing various styles of music from soul to pop & now some modern sounding stuff with no announcer in between + non-stop so most likely automated. There was a recorded announcement at the top of the hour, which sounded like they were saying apologies for break in programming due to the strike. I will upload that announcement later for those that speak better French than me.

Musique playing classical, non-stop as well although heard an announcer at top of the hour which I could not hear too well because signal got weak.

France Bleu on 94.7 from Lille sounds like they are going on as normal. Heard casual chat & laughter with person on phone, did not sound like a news report.

France Inter have music playing non-stop so maybe they are part of the strike as well.

France Radio (Inter, Culture, Musique) etc are on Strikes since many days but infact all of France is on Strike against Macron's Retirement reforms which can mean the next generation of workers must work much longer for less retirement pay.

Good Dx

Thank you for the information Pascal.

I have uploaded a video of what I received...

Inter had a live news update at the top of the hour regarding the strike. Culture & Musique were still automated from what I could hear.

Confirmation many France FM channels inclus Inter, Culture etc are not normal live programs but pre record because of the strikes here in France.

Good Dx

I am receiving Culture again & just heard the same announcement about the strike, so programmes have not gone back to normal. Non-stop music continuing. When I checked the stream last night it had chat.
