Bonjour, RVA! Bienvenue à Francosonic…
Every Sunday from 7 – 9 a.m. you can hear music with French lyrics – all genres, from all around the world – here on Francosonic.
Today we’ll check out some classic French tunes – jazz, cabaret, samba, and more – whose echoes have been heard throughout other eras. This includes covers and samples you might not expect. We’ll pay a special tribute to Charles Aznavour, the silky-voiced French singer whose tenor was compared to that of Frank Sinatra. Sadly, Aznavour passed away earlier this month and was given special recognition by many French dignitaries at his funeral.
You can read more about Aznavour’s contributions to music and film here.

POP Goes The World! presents:
It’s our fall fund drive and because I love you, I’ve secured the man called RVA’s best song writer, Benjamin Shepherd to come in and play some songs and talk about what he’s been up to since I had him on the show 4 years ago.
Throw us a couple of bucks and secure our 2018 fall fund drive t-shirt!

Secret Bonus Level presents:
Well, it’s the fund drive. And you know what that means. It means they left us a HUGE MFING MESS TO CLEAN UP. Lolololololololololol. And so our show is slapped together and taped together and glued together as we try our best to put back together the pieces of this radio station that our listeners and volunteers always break and stuff right around fund drive o’clock.
I’m not making my only joke about fund drives tonight. Because I don’t feel it. But still, kids, get in the car. If you want to. I don’t care. Or don’t I really don’t care at this point. We still have our one and only house band, The Secret Bonus Level Band, playing their improvised beats. And we still have a few rappers to rap along with them. It’ll be fine.
This is a rap show. And it’s NOT for the fund drive. Eat an egg, IdgaFLYINGUNHOLYf.
Oh yeah. And in the coming weeks, expect us to show you more of Frankenstein Reyes’ art. It’s hype af.
