Music in France. Music from the Great SAINT LOUIS Missouri
We play a lot of French music here. That’s about all there is (except for the over -played Adele, Taylor Swift or Bruno Mars…….) and I think that really needs to change.
So on a day that I chose to grocery shop in Aubagne, the next village over, and drag my eco-grocery bags with me and shop with mon ami, Abigail, things began to fly everywhere as the MISTRAL hit us today and I was out in it!! If you know what a MISTRAL is like, you don’t want to be out, because God forbid if you left your scarf at home, or worse, your warm coat, or your hat, as temperatures drop big time, your hair goes flying, your packages go sliding down the voie at your train station; it’s a mess. Julia Child absolutely LOVED the MISTRAL but, hmmm, I’m not so sure, personally. The MISTRAL is a day to stay home. So imagine my delight when my son posted on facebook that his friend was playing in 1 hour on KDHX in Saint Louis. I thought how great it would be if I could tap into the music or stream it, especially on a day like today, when I needed to be home, stay warm and listen to some really good music for a change.
I also knew it probably impossible because nothing much streams here as our WiFi is up and down or it’s weak. To stream you must have a pretty good signal.
Well, lo and behold, the music did stream and we got to hear Ryan Spearman and some wonderful tunes listening to KDHX 88.1 in Saint Louis for about 3 hours. It put us in the best frame of mind, to finally hear music we liked and understood. The WIND was HOWLING outside our little Les Romarins Apartment……..but we had not a care in the world!!!!! Thank you Ryan Spearman!!!
I was so excited I wrote the station an e-mail and said:
THANK YOU !!! It was great! My son put it on FB that you would be playing and that Ryan Spearman would be on and we love him…..so we tuned in all the way from Marseille France.
Thanks for a great show! We ate our dinner while you played great tunes!
We’ll tune in more often now.

THEN, they wrote me back:
