There has been a French show on Eastside Radio each Wednesday night continuously for 17 years.

Gabrielle & Sandrine started ForeverFrench as a musical program since 2000. PR Emmanuelle Revelut joined them in 2011. And now the team has grown with talented presenters: DJ Mehdi Mendez, Singer and ‘Queen Kafe’ presenter Stephanie Denizard, and Event expert Vincent Hernandez.

ForeverFrench is about music from French speaking countries, including Belgium, Switzerland, Africa, The French Caribbean, Quebec, New Caledonia, Tahiti, Madagascar and Reunion island. Naturally we play music produced in France some of which is in English, Arabic or Corsican and even the Celtic dialect of Brittany!

All of our presenters travel to France regularly so we have the opportunity of filtering the ‘wheat from the chaff’ thus presenting a program that is current, interesting and enjoyable. We tend to play music that is often not even played in France but is always music that we adore.

Our programs include : Serge Gainsbourg, Boris Vian, Juliette Greco, Henri Salvador, Gilbert Laffaille, Jacques Higelin, Jacques Dutronc  and quirky stuff like Bobby Lapointe, Nino Ferrer, Gerard Morel, Anais, Presque Oui, Rodolphe Burger, Philippe Poirier, Ben Mazue, Bertrand Belin, Bertrand Burgalat, Mathieu Boggaerts, C2C…

And of course French jazz : the Double Six, Claude Nougaro, The Voice Messengers, Michel Legrand, Richard Galliano, Mario Canonge.

Gabrielle Haumesser used to work for French Public radio. She also ran a nightclub which promoted interesting, new artists. She fell in love with 2JJ (forerunner of today’s 2JJJ) whilst holidaying in Sydney and later moved here permanently. She sees her program as a combination of her passion for music and Eastside FM.

She has a strong interest in films, spirituality and humanity and loves traveling. She lived in the French Caribbean and New Caledonia before moving to Australia. There she discovered Beguine and Zouk adding yet another style to her quite eclectic  tastes.
